2016 Programs

May 21, 2016 ~ Pam Dougherty, audiobook narration, details coming soon

June 18, 2016 ~ Laura Drake, Balancing Backstory, We need backstory in our novels. It deepens our characters, illustrates who they are, and how they came to be that way. But we’ve all heard about ‘backstory dumps’ and how they can bog down a read. So how do you tell the reader what they need to know, without writing the parts they skip? It’s a delicate balance, requiring subtle technique. Laura will give you the tools you need to craft fully-rounded characters that your readers will love - without all the baggage.
