I will be leading two workshops at this year's 34th Annual Writers Conference at Christopher Newport University!
Friday, February 27th—7:40 to 9 PM
Finding Your First Person: Cultivating YA / Middle-grade Narrators
One of the joys of first-person narrative is that feeling of the narrator talking directly to the reader. In this workshop, YA / middlegrade writers will focus on first-person narratives until characters leap off the page.
Saturday, February 28th—1:10 to 2:30 PM
Creating Something out of Nothing: Short Story Workshop
Writers need look no further than their own newspaper when searching for new stories to tell. By looking at the local paper as a source of inspiration writers bring their own voice to characters ripped from the headlines.
