Wordsmith– I also write books

Seems that I’m teaching more and writing less.  Even though it’s hard to balance, I want to help new writers hone into their craft.  My classes for next year will center on Point of View.  Learn about it on my new site, http://www.writerspointofview.com — but that’s not all.  At the end of August I’ll join other authors for the Savvy Authors Summer Symposium:

Savvy Authors SUMMER SYMPOSIUM
sym·po·si·um:
   1. A meeting or conference for discussion of a topic, especially one in which the participants form an audience and make presentations.
   2. A collection of writings on a particular topic, as in a magazine.
   3. A convivial meeting for drinking, music, and intellectual discussion among the ancient Greeks.

Join us for five days as we talk craft - from plot and character, to dialogue, suspense, theme and story question (with a bunch of stuff in between) in chats, Q&A forums and mini-workshops. Our presenters will be sharing what works - whether it's worldbuilding or setting or layering in back story; or even if it's technical detail and the fruits of research, they'll be exposing the craft that underlies a good story. We'll also be talking about publishing and promoting, offering pitch opportunities to the attendees and raffling off books on craft from folks like James Scott Bell novels, gift certificates, workshops, 3-chapter critiques from published authors and more.

August 24 - 28 for workshops, chats, Q&A's & raffles!
