Today we spotlight one of the workshop presenters:
Susan A. J. Lyttek, author of the Talbott family mystery trilogy by Harbourlight Books, and the kids’ comedy Guzzy Goofball and the Homeschool Play from Outer Space (Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas) writes near the nation’s capital. Her story, The Grumpy Chronicles, won first place in the speculative category of the 2014 Writers on the Storm and is available in their current anthology. She enjoys teaching the next generation of writers through WriteAtHome and the local co-op. Find out more about her upcoming books and other projects at http://www.sajlyttek.com.
Weaving Fact Into Your Fiction: Even fiction that has little connection with the world we live in needs a well-planned seasoning of facts to engage potential readers. How else can we make run of the mill fiction, or even the most bizarre invented worlds, reach the reader and suspend disbelief? By choosing when and how to add facts, we create stories that make connections, draw people in and leave them satisfied.
Planning for Pantsters: Pantsers can be successful writers. They just need to know how to work with their own talents and system–even if it makes no sense to most everyone else. This workshop will help give any eager pantser the tools to succeed!
