Writers today face an uphill climb. The competition is fierce, the learning curve steep. There’s no magic wand, but by learning the basic techniques for crafting a novel, the beginning writer can quickly flatten the learning curve.

For both beginning writers and more advanced pros looking for new insights, this workshop provides writers with the tools needed to craft their own novel—a novel that will grab a reader’s attention and keep them turning pages.
Here are some of the topics covered:
  • Secrets of good dialogue
  • Tips for self-editing
  • Writing in scene
  • Elements of plot and structure
  • Creating characters that sizzle
  • Crafting strong beginnings, middles and ends
Don’t put your writing dreams on hold—let the Novel in a Day Workshop show you how to turn rejection slips into royalties. Registration fee includes a 30-page workbook.
At the end of the workshop and when applying what was learned, you will be able to:
  • Utilize essential tools for plotting and writing a novel.
  • Create memorable characters that linger in the reader’s mind.
  • Craft strong beginnings, middles and endings.
  • Learn how to show, not tell. 
Mark your calendars for:
  • Friday August 8th, either of three Friday workshops: Children’s Book, Fiction Writing, or Non-Fiction Educational Sessions.
  • Saturday, August 9th, FAPA Fall Conference
  • Saturday evening, August 9th, 2014 FAPA President’s Awards Banquet.
