EVENT: 34th Annual Pennwriters Conference
The 34th Annual Pennwriters Conference is coming your way virtually. Registration is now open for the three-day conference and for two intensives held the day before the conference. Except for sitting with friends in the lounge and at meals, the conference will still have all the parts you love! Keynote Speakers are Susan Meier and Eileen Enwright Hodgetts. The conference begins at 9:00 am on Friday, May 14 and runs through Sunday, May 16.
I will be teaching:"Write the Book They Can't Put Down" Heidi will guide you through tips based on her article "The Shifting Grail: A Quest for a Good Read" from the international award-winning writing guide Many Genres, One Craft: Lessons in Writing Popular Fiction. Using examples from well-known movies and literature, she'll show how character motivation can dictate pacing and suspense, making your book one readers can't put down. There will be lots of opportunities to apply these tips to your WIP or to a new project.
"Middle Grade, In-Betweener, or Young Adult?" When pre-teens and early teens want to read about characters in their age group, they are sometimes out of luck so they either go for younger (MG) or older (YA) protagonists, but now there's INB. Which writers are writing for this formative demographic, and what great works have they given us? This workshop is based on Heidi's article for the January 2020 issue of The Writer magazine.
Hope to see you on the screen!
