Fellow writers, let me spread the good word! On Saturday, January 28th, a practical, affordable one-day conference is being held at Tabor Space and promises to cover "everything from creating potent sentences and writing irresistible query letters, to writing killer openers and making it as a writer in a media-saturated world."
|Emily Whitman, author|
I'm attending because Emily Whitman is on the faculty. She's written two of my current favorite YA novels: Radiant Darkness and Wildwing, and I know from experience that she's a gifted teacher of the craft of writing.
Here's a blurb from Jessica Morrell's fantastic craft-oriented website, with info links to all of the faculty:
