March Writing Workshops 2012

Instructor: Bob Mayer
Dates: March, 2012
Course Description: Can you say what your book is about in 25 words of less? This is essential to both writing a tight book and then selling it. We'll discuss ways to find and state your original idea so that you stay on course while writing the book. The original idea will you excite those you tell it to when trying to sell it. Conflict drives your story. Not only must conflict escalate throughout the entire novel, every single scene must have conflict in it. The Conflict Box is an effective technique for focusing your story on the protagonist, antagonist, their goals and finding out if you have the necessary conflict lock. These two key concepts can help you focus your writing and narrow your pitch.

Course Description: Plot, character arc, transitions, climax, revise, rewrite, make that deadline, blog, check social media sites, continued education, volunteer for local writing group, read critique partners manuscript, research agents/publishers, read books within your genre, read a craft book and network. These are ALL things that go through writers' minds on any give day. But what if you had to add: Make bottles, keep up with diaper/Gerber/ formula supplies, feed baby three times a day plus bottle feedings, playtime, bathe baby, wipe up thrown sweet potatoes, shower to get sweet potatoes out of your hair, more playtime, hope for a naptime (for baby, you must write,) schedule playdates, read to baby, and hope baby actually goes to bed at the designated time...

Instructor: Tessa Montgomery

Course Description: ...That’s what we’ll do in one short week: work out a layout of our lands, our towns, our travels if need be. Figure out distances, which way to turn to get where we’re going, and which shop or home or tavern we’ll visit or past. In fact, we’ll sort out a heck of a lot of things and even draw some maps or room layouts. Doing so in crayon is fine if you can sneak them away from the crayon owners. We won’t tell.  And neither will our characters.
Instructor: Nina Bruhns
Dates: March 5-16, 2012
Course Description: Kindles, Nooks, and iPads are all the rage these days. For authors who have gotten the rights reverted on their older books, uploading them to the various self-publishing programs can be a nice added income.

Instructor: Kimberly Llewellyn
Dates: March 5-25, 2012

Instructors: Kathleen Rowland
Dates: March 5-25, 2012
Course Description: The second most common reason for manuscript rejection (after lackluster story) is faulty point of view. POV is one of fiction writing's tricky challenges, but when you get it right, you will deepen everything your character thinks, says, experiences with bodily response and the other four senses. Using the flashlight-on-the-head technique, you are going to be a whiz at sticking to one POV per scene. You'll submit a three page section per week and receive feedback. It's fine to use your work-in-progress. By the end of the month, you'll know if your scene is long enough to make a point. You'll start using an 'in the moment' method to quicken the pace. Most important of all, your characters will sound like themselves.
Instructor: Alice Osborn
Dates: March 5-25, 2012
Course Description: These days even if you're a great writer, no one will know unless you work the business of writing.

Instructor: Sharon Mignerey
Dates: March 5-30, 2012
Course Description: Most of the fiction writers I know have several books on character development that espouse all sorts of advice.

Instructor: Tamela Buhrke
Dates: March 5-30, 2012
Course Description: Fact: Social media will be a part of your life as a writer. Your publisher will make you use it. And if you self publish, it will be essential.

Instructor: Pam McCutcheon

Course Description: As most of you know the greatest number of historical romances set in Scotland are set in the Highlands, due in large part to the romance of the tragic past from the 18th  and 19th  century. However, if you have done any research on Scotland at all you know that much of the country’s history occurred in the Lowlands and Borders. This class will help you to define where are the Lowlands/Borders located, who the people are and how their culture was different than that of their fellow Scots to the north.  Scottish romances are a mainstay in historical romance and many publishers are looking for new and unique plots.

This class will allow you to explore the Other Scotland lacking in the body of Scottish historical romances : the Lowlands and Borders.

Instructor: Barbara Plum

Course Description: Where we live—or where we grew up—shapes almost everything about us:  what we eat, our accent, our political views, our religious beliefs, our expectations.  (Sometimes we’re the opposite of everyone we know.  Chances are, our setting influenced that difference).  The same idea applies to our characters.
Instructor: Misty Evans
Dates: March 12-25, 2012

It’s dealing with the Middle of Your Story. FINDING a middle to your story. And not just one that suffices, but one that will have readers (which are what editors are, too) wanting to keep turning the pages.

Instructor: Shannon Donnelly
Dates: March 12-April 8

Instructor: Babs Mountjoy
Dates: March 12-April 8
Course Description: You've persevered, sweated and edited until you've created a published novel--Congratulations! Now you need to sell it. So many small press authors are expected to do this without a lot of help from their publishers, without a budget, and without a whole lot of time on their hands, since most of them have day jobs, too. And families. And more books to write.
Instructor: MM Pollard

Instructor: Marcy Weydemuller
Dates: March 12-April 9
Course Description: The reality of our world, its emotional resonance and unique atmosphere, will be found in the details. Either we see it though the familiarity and ordinariness of our main character, or we see its strangeness through her confusion or entrancement. So it’s important for us to know the details ourselves. Just as we can walk around our homes in the dark, knowing exactly where we are, so must our characters. What is real to them needs to be real to us. This provides authentic atmosphere, tone and mood. But it doesn’t mean we need to invent everything. In this four-week workshop we’ll break ground to create our unique setting.

This introduction will consist of examples of sex in horror, from film, art and literature. Participants will also enjoy an overview of the expectations and criteria of the horror genre and a brief discussion about the integral association between horror and sex.
Instructor: Jaye Roycraft
Dates: March 19-26
Course Description: Not every talented writer will be able to obtain an agent.  Many choose instead to submit directly to publishers that don’t require agented submissions – small publishers or epubs.  But good small publishers, like agents, are highly selective in their acceptances.  Hear directly from two publishers what they look for in submissions.  Don’t burn good markets by making mistakes that can easily be avoided.

Instructor: Alice Osborn
Dates: March 26-April 15
Course Description: What does your fictional character really want? How do you create memorable characters so fresh and clever your reader will always remember them? Disney/Pixar films such as Finding Nemo, Cars and Up have created the most believable characters in twenty first century film. In this three-part workshop we’ll study these films so they can tell us how to create riveting and complex main characters who will drive our story and connect with our readers.

Happy writing!

Holy crap, this is such a fabulous list. I didn't dig down in it the other day(I think I got distracted by the Medical to SSE interview with Lynne), but I'm glad I came back to look today!

Totally loving your site design, btw.
