|Florida Heritage Book Festival - St. Augustine, Florida - Book Sales - Workshops|
Get ready for the Florida Heritage Book Festival and Writer's Conference happening late September 2014. This is a super chance for literary lovers - both authors and readers. There will be tons of books for sale, plenty of educational opportunities, and the privilege to visit the one and only, beautiful Flagler College.
Being that JLB Creatives Publishing will be an active part of the festival, we'll be listing a festival "nugget" from the line-up every Tuesday and Friday right here on the blog.
Thursday, September 25 – Critique Workshops – 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
There is no single way to write a good book, but we all have to start at the same place by writing those first few pages. But how do we know how good they are, and if we’re on the right track?
The Conference Critique Workshops offer a day of inspiration, motivation and positive feedback from faculty members and fellow students in an intimate setting. Small groups of no more than 12 writers (select Fiction or Nonfiction) will come together to critique each other’s ten-page submissions. Workshop critiques for each individual will last at least 30 minutes, and workshop leaders will provide a written one-page critique to each student.
Please note: After registering for the September 25 Critique Workshops, your ten-page manuscript is due by Tuesday, September 2, in order to give us time to disseminate materials to the faculty and others in the workshop. They should be double-spaced and sent electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org
