Or, How I Spent My Summer Vacation
Join thriller author Hannah Jayne as she lets you in on the real homework of being an author. Far beyond comma splices, theme, and grammar, Jayne will show you the
nitty-gritty – and exceptionally awesome – things that authors get to do to make those thrillers, mysteries, and fantasies jump out, grab you, and never let you go until the very last page. This talk is great if you want to write, love to read, or just want to know what else an author does.
*Suitable for Young Adults
From Question to Query
You've written the two best words in the English language: The End. Your manuscript is warm and heartfelt with just the right amount of blood and tears and now... what? Condense all those glorious words, those tightly wound plots to -- a single page? Multi-published author Hannah Jayne sheds some light on the elusive query letter -- from anatomy to mastery. You'll learn proper format and research technique, some snappy starter sentences and how to write a synopsis paragraph that jumps right off the page and into an editor's "yes!" pile.
Workshop format - approximately 3 hours

This detailed, all-day/multi-day workshop is a must for writers just taking their first few author steps or for those who are ready to get serious and get published!
