Writing for Children – (Terri Kelly) Basics are important when writing for kids. Learn good strategy and formulas for writing inside a kid's mind.
Why A Small Press Could Be Your Best Route to Publishing Success - (Eddie Jones) In this class we will explore the path to a profitable and successful writing carrer via traditional, royalty-paying Independent book publishers (Indies). Learn how eBooks, Print On Demand and book distribution into Christian bookstores can lead to a regular royalty checks.
Digging Deeper into Fiction: Sub-plots, Character Development & Conversation - (Ann Tatlock & Yvonne Lehman) Plot too simplistic? Characters flat? Dialogue stilted? We can help! This class is designed to assist you in developing and weaving together sub-plots that will support your main plot and keep your story moving. You’ll learn how to round out your characters so they become three-dimensional. And you’ll find out how to engage your characters in dialogue that’s both believable and intriguing.
Would You Read On?- (Diana Flegal) Come one- come all! Be bold and courageous and bring your first pages. This class is formatted after our popular Wednesday Hartline Blog, Would You Read On?
During the course of this class, brave authors will allow me to read aloud your fiction or nonfiction first pages. Those in attendance and myself will offer our opinion as to whether you have succeeded in 'hooking' us into wanting to read on? If we are not 'hooked', we will share why not and what could possibly be done to improve the page. This is a great exercise in helping you know if your material is ready to submit to an editor or agent.
Officer Level Additional Workshops
Rejections? What Do They Really Mean - (Diana Flegal) Sit with an agent and learn the value found in those rejection letters. In this class you'll find direction on what publishers see that push them to reject.
Social Networking – You Can and MUST Do It - (Edie Melson) Publishers expect their authors to promote their books. Social networking is a fast and effective way to talk to the masses without leaving your home. Learn the importance of Twitter and Facebook, Blogs and websites and how you can become a constant presence.
