When we first started planning for a one-day event to bring writers, agents and editors together, we set our goal at 50 participants and 3 agents. Now, we’re at over 100 participants and 5 agents, a nationally recognized keynote speaker (Bret Anthony Johnston), marvelous breakout session speakers and setting our sites on an even bigger event in 2015! Looking forward to seeing lots of Red Oak Folk this weekend!
Red Oak Folk and their adoring fans packed
Saz’s State Room for our fall Writers’ Showcase Reading!
Many thanks to our fantastic readers:
You guys knocked it out of the park!
An astute, generous group of writers shared their wisdom about how to make our characters come to life for our readers.
Here’s what a couple of them had to say about our morning together:
Just the right mix of craft, theory, and discussion. Really good writing exercises, something to kickstart my writing even after the class.
Great class Saturday I got a ton out of it…The exercise worked for me. [It] was perfect for my particular situation. Really enjoyed myself!
The Saturday workshop made a big difference for me. I learned to recognize how an author goes about creating a character; I learned how to do that in my own writing. Your format of group activity and discussion were effective in the the learning process–and made the time fly. Thanks for putting it all together. I’ll never forget what we all got out of Paul Neuman clip.
Many thanks to the participants in our craft workshop, Creating Credible, Unforgettable Characters,
