I hope you've been lucky enough to have attended a Highlights workshop. I've been to quite a few and turn green around the edges every time I hear that someone I know is attending one and I'm not.
I need this one-Writing For Boys - February 6 - 9 for my work-in-progress! Follow the link for complete info. Meanwhile here's a workshop description
Rich Wallace, Lenore Look, and Chris Crutcher will help you delve deeply into your characters’ psyches, exploring their motivations, frustrations, and personalities to truly bring them to life on the page. Weaving action and humor into your stories will be a focal point of the program, which will explore the intricacies of creating fiction for boys.
The workshop will include:
- In-depth discussion of your work-in-progress;
- Writing exercises designed to heighten the emotions and revelations of specific scenes;
- Lectures on topics ranging from creating realistic dialogue to sharpening your plot.
And if you can't go to that one, maybe I'll bump into you at an Unworkshop - where for $ 99 a day you can write, eat well, and connect with other writers who happen to be doing the same thing. Sounds like heaven on earth to me!
