How can someone get the most out of writers conferences?
Come with a commitment to learning. Professional writing is a far cry from the writing you did in high school and college, so get ready to take lots of notes and make changes in anything you’ve already written.
What’s your best advice for writers?
Realize that your path and your voice will be unique.
Please give us a snapshot of your continuing class.
I’ll be teaching the continuing fiction track, where I’ll share as much as I can in the time allowed. We’ll start with the big picture of a novel, then break it down into plotting, characters, tension, evoking emotion, point of view, self-editing, self-publishing (or not), and much more.
