Write Your Heart Out: February 13, 2016
On the fence about going to the Pikes Peak Writers Conference or just looking for some great interesting and educational programming? The 4th annual Write Your Heart Out, free half-day conference preview, will take place on Saturday, February 13, from 1 to 5 PM at the Colorado Springs Marriott. It will once again feature six local speakers who are faculty for PPWC 2016.
We will have a small bookstore at the event, just like last year, with books available from our WYHO speakers, as well as craft and PPWC 2016 keynote books, and our WYHO speakers will be signing at the event! And, once again, we will offer some great giveaways and specials for those attending WYHO.
The ever funny Becky Clark has agreed to be our master of ceremonies again.
Come explore opportunities available in today’s ever evolving writing market, from Jodi Anderson. Also, come to find new tools to raise your productivity and focus as she presents a sample of KEEPING ALL THE BALLS IN THE AIR: Multiple Streams of Productivity and Revenue.
Whether your story takes place in a supernatural urban scape, a dystopian future, or a slightly magical real world setting, the surest way to hook a reader is to engage their heart. Evangeline Denmark will take a look at key concepts and discuss making your story unique and emotionally engaging as she presents a sample of The Heart of your Speculative Novel.
Twenty-thousand words in, your story has died, and you don’t know how to break through, so you rewrite chapter one for the hundredth time. Sound familiar? Warren Hammond will help you bust through the roadblocks by analyzing scene and sequel, the building blocks of all stories as he presents a sample of SCENE AND SEQUEL: The Engine Of Story.
While many authors are introverts, none of us can afford to ignore social media and marketing. Michelle Major will give tips and techniques for successfully engaging with readers using many popular platforms, as she presents a sample of Introverts Can Network Too! How To Succeed At Social Media Even When You’re Shy.
