SPRING BOARD: WRITER’S HELPING WRITERS REACH NEW HEIGHTS: The Mechanics of Writing
SPRING BOARD: WRITER’S HELPING WRITERS REACH NEW HEIGHTS
FWA SOUTH FLORIDA MINI CONFERENCE
WHEN: MARCH 29, 2014, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
WHERE: SHERATON SUITES, 311 NORTH UNIVERSITY DRIVE,
As I mentioned in a previous post about the South Florida mini conference, the all- day conference will be divided into three tracks. Today, I will be discussing Track 3,
which is: THE MECHANICS OF WRITING.
Okay, I hate to play favorites but this track is going to be phenomenal. Get a load of Samantha Shad, an actual, real life Hollywood screenwriter, will begin the morning
with a discussion on creating drama and the Heroes Journey.
After Samantha’s talk, Marjetta Geerling, popular YA author and local writing professor, will be holding two classes. The one before lunch is on sharpening humor
in dialogue and the one after lunch will focus on solving the mystery of voice.
Then, to top off an already perfect track, Glenn Gardiner will discuss structuring your story.
Now, I know you do not want to miss this! I surely don’t.
See you on March 29th!
