ACFW Virginia is pleased to introduce our 2019 Conference Keynote Speaker, Lisa Carter.
In our general session, Lisa will be presenting both an inspirational and an instructional workshop.
Inspirational Keynote: Writing From Deep Places
Instructional Workshop Title: Hooks, Lines, and Sinkers
About the Workshop
The very first sentence of a story can be extremely powerful. It can stick with you for days, weeks, even years. End your novel poorly and you’ll spoil the whole book; end it well and you will leave the reader satisfied, perhaps even moved. In this workshop, Lisa will review the secret to crafting great opening and closing lines.
Lisa is also taking mentor appointments during the conference. Sign up to chat with this talented, multi-published author about your current work in progress or ask questions about the publishing industry or marketing advice. Click here to schedule an appointment with Lisa.
