Learn how to write a novel in a day

May 6, 2012

Is it possible to pack a year’s worth of learning into a day-long interactive session? Award-winning author Vic DiGenti thinks so.

Vic is the facilitator of Novel in a Day, an FWA-sponsored mini-conference to be held Saturday, June 9, 2012, at the Embassy Suites hotel in Tampa, Florida. Designed for both beginning writers and pros, the workshop will provide attendees with the tools to craft a novel that will grab a reader’s attention and keep him or her turning the pages.

Vic will cover:

  • Plot and structure
  • Characters
  • Dialogue
  • Beginnings, middles, and ends
  • Point of View
  • Self-editing

Added bonus: During lunch (boxed lunch provided), Vic will present a side-workshop entitled ePublishing 101.
