Savvy Authors’ Summer Symposium August 24-28, 2011

It’s that time again! A great writers’ conference from Savvy Authors. Just a few days away from when all the fun begins. I’ve told my critique partners, members of local writer’s groups and friends. See you there for five days of awesome.  Here’s information from www.savvyauthors.com :
sym·po·si·um (sĭm-pō’zē-əm)
  1. A meeting or conference for discussion of
    a topic, especially one in which the participants form an audience and make
    presentations.
  2. A collection of writings on a particular
    topic, as in a magazine.
  3. A convivial meeting for drinking, music,
    and intellectual discussion among the ancient
    Greeks.
Join us for five days as we talk craft – from plot and character, to dialogue, suspense, theme and story questions (with a bunch of stuff in between) in chats, Q&A forums and mini-workshops. Our presenters will be sharing what works – whether it’s worldbuilding or setting or layering in back story; or even if it’s technical detail and the fruits of research, they’ll be exposing the craft that underlies a good story. We’ll also be talking about publishing and promoting, offering pitch opportunities to the attendees and raffling off over 175 prizes from books on craft from folks like James Scott Bell, novels, gift certificates, workshops, 3-chapter critiques from published authors and more.
