WHY ATTEND A WRITERS’ ROAD TRIP?
By Todd Main
We’ve all been there. You bring home that new “assembly required” piece of furniture or equipment that may contain many parts, unrecognizable items, and hundreds of fasteners. The directions (translated from Chinese), are in a step-by-step format, with hard-to-comprehend line drawings. While the picture on the box depicts the beautiful item you hope to soon use and enjoy, the pile of pieces spread before you hardly resembles anything.
But what if you didn’t have these instructions? Or worse yet, a vital piece is missing? Then what? Your results could be nothing but frustrating.
The SAME goes for writing good material and getting it published!
That’s why the Area 1 Pennwriters put together an enjoyable writing experience titled A Writers’ Road Trip. Our goal is to introduce you to the “Keys to Great Writing” and give you the opportunity to master the elements of composition, revision, publishing and marketing.
During our 6th annual one day conference, we’re once again hosting a personable group of experts to help pull your writing together so it looks like that book (or article or story or poem) you envisioned when you first sat down to write. Unlike the “assembly required” furniture, these experts supply the missing instructions.
This is not a virtual event. You actually will meet with other writers to learn, share, laugh, talk writing, eat, and spend the day in beautiful, fall-colored northwestern Pennsylvania. This interaction could lead to discovering the writing mentor you always longed to meet.
