Tired of re-hashing the same writing exercises? Feel like you’re ready to take the next step in your writing? Want to know what publishing and social networking opportunities are available for writers?
This workshop is for writers who consider themselves to be at an intermediate stage in their writing or who have been writing for a few years. Previous publication experience is not necessary.
Workshop topics cover advanced principles including, but not limited to: voice, character motivation, and plot. How do our characters drive plot? Looking to develop your narrative arc? How can writers develop their on-line personas? Join Alice Kuipers as she shows you how!
Alice Kuipers' first novel, Life on the Refrigerator Door, was published in 28 countries, won several awards and was named as a New York Times book for the Teen Age. Her second book is called Lost for Words in the U.S and The Worst Things She Ever Did in the rest of the world. It won the Arthur Ellis Award, was short-listed for the White Pine and Willow Awards, and was published in eight territories. 40 Things I Want To Tell You is her newest novel for young adults. The Best-ever Bookworm Book by Violet and Victor Small is her first picture book. It's in production with Little, Brown Books For Young Readers, and a sequel will follow.
