We have author Tim Shoemaker coming to speak to us on the following topics! Register now! 

Session 1
Show-Don't-Tell- Often fiction writers are telling a story when they should be showing it. I won't tell you how to fix this... I'll show you.
Point-of-View- This is an area of fiction that trips up a lot of writers.  We'll show you how to avoid the POV mistakes, and how to write in a deeper POV. I'll explain it in a way where you'll get it--and your writing will improve dramatically.

Session 2
19 Tips for Stronger Characters- Learn secrets to creating characters that your reader will love.  I'll share some things you probably won't read in writing textbooks--but they work!
Action and Fight Scenes- Action isn’t just about car chases. It’s found in dialogue, interior thought, and more. Learn tips for writing action that will keep your readers gripping your book . . . and holding their breath

Session 3
Dialogue- Talk may be cheap, but poor dialogue in your manuscript will cost you.  We’ll learn how to dump the dull stuff and sharpen your dialogue skills.

Session 4
Creating a Scene- A story is told through a series of scenes. I'll show secrets to writing more powerful scenes, and how to connect the scenes in ways that will strengthen your fiction... guaranteed.
