Writing Crime Fiction, Thrillers, and More: Tax-Deductible Workshop by Bestselling Author R.J. Ellory

March 18, 2012

Internationally renowned author R.J. Ellory is ready to share his secrets with you in a daylong seminar October 18, 2012, at the Orlando Marriott Lake Mary. The workshop is sponsored by the Florida Writers Foundation, Inc., a charitable organization in support of literacy.

“Writing Wrongs: A workshop on Crime Fiction and Thrillers” will run from 9 AM to 5 PM and include lunch. R.J. will discuss how to strip away the mysteries attendant to the genre and identify the real reasons that crime fiction works—or doesn’t. But don’t think you have to write crime fiction to benefit from this workshop by a mega-successful writer: R.J.’s insights will benefit any of us who wants to perfect our craft. Prepare yourself, as well, for a lively Q&A on writing, the business of being published, agent representation, screenplay adaptations, and the life of a touring author.

R.J. has been published in more than 20 languages by as many publishers around the world. Among his bestselling and multi-award-winning books are A Quiet Vendetta, A Quiet Belief in Angels, and A Simple Act of Violence. He has plenty to say to authors at all levels not only during the October Celebrity Workshop but also in a special video he made for FWA: Write on! with R.J. Ellory.
