Why you should attend the 32nd Annual Pennwriters Conference Reason #3:
Pre-Conference Intensive with Timons Esaias Seats are filling fast for this full day workshop intensive, The Crafts of Fiction: The Nuts, the Bolts, and Hoisting the Girders into Place, taught by satirist, poet, essayist and short fictionator Timons Esaias. Timons thinks vague writing advice doesn’t help you put words on the page, and he knows that what folks really need are Tools That They Can Use. This workshop will emphasize a wide variety of specific procedures to get the story on the page, and then rewrite it into a publishable product. There will be exercises, examples, tricks, and warnings. The plan is to touch on ALL the major crafts that go into fiction, and to take actual steps toward mastery. If that wasn’t enticement enough, Timons will provide a critique of ten manuscript pages for each registered participant [submitted either before or after the workshop], access to a number of Esaias’s written lecturelets, and best of all, he’s bringing malt balls. Timons won the Asimov’s Readers Award and the Louis Award for poetry and was a finalist for the BSFA. He teaches in the Seton Hill University MFA in Writing Popular Fiction. Timons will also sit on a read & critique panel and is teaching two workshops during the main Conference, Writing Poetry for Genre Markets: Mystery, Horror, Fantasy, SF & More and Getting the Craft into Your Paragraph.
If you haven’t attended one of Timons’ workshops, you’re missing a great opportunity to improve your writing no matter if you’re a beginner or experienced writer.
