9:40-10:20 AM / KEYNOTE SPEAKER
Meeting Room A/B/C

Multi-published author Abby L. Vandiver speaks on Building a Writing Community.

Writing is not a solitary endeavor. Fellowship, support and sharing with other writers is the foundation of writing success. 

Note: Sessions with an asterisk (*) include a writing exercise.

10:30-11:30 AM / BREAKOUT SESSIONS

1. Publish Your Pain / Deante Young. Looking back on painful, emotional traumas of the past, it’s easy to feel resentment. What if you channeled that raw anger into something uplifting and life-changing? In this session, Young explores how you can write about setbacks and challenges with real world examples to illustrate his message of using life experiences to serve yourself and others in positive ways.

2. Publishing with Small Presses / Deanna Adams. Most writers harbor dreams of publishing with a big agent and publisher who will launch their book to the best seller’s list. And yet, it’s a hard dream to fulfill in today’s book industry. But that doesn’t mean you can’t be published through other means. Small presses are a great way to get many of the benefits of a big publisher and maintain more control over your product.

*3. Building Your Natural Talent for Writing Prose or Poetry / Marion Starling Boyer. Gregory Orr proposes that writers are born with a natural gift for Music, Structure, Story, or Imagination. In this session, learn ways to complement your natural ability and gain practical ideas for making your writing more powerful, alive, and memorable.

11:30-11:45 AM / BREAK & PREARRANGED EDITING SESSIONS

11:45 AM-12:45 PM / BREAKOUT SESSIONS

1. Writing and Researching True Crime / James Renner. Are you fascinated by true crime and want to write a book about it? Should you write it as a work of nonfiction or turn it into a novel? How do you approach a source for an interview? What do you need to know about the law to protect yourself and your book? Crime writer James Renner shares his methods and experience writing about unsolved mysteries in Ohio.

2. Publishing Industry Insider / Julie Anne Lindsey. Join award-winning and bestselling author Julie Anne Lindsey as she pulls back the curtain on the publishing industry and shares what it takes to move your story from pen to paperback. She'll answer questions, bust some myths, and shed light on what you need to know about today’s traditional publishing.

*3.  Honing Your Craft through Various Techniques / Kevin P. Keating. Most writers find something deeply gratifying in the oftentimes arduous process of putting pen to paper, and getting their characters to come to life on the page. During his talk, award-winning author Kevin Keating will examine craft techniques that will help give your fiction greater depth and meaning, including a closer examination of character, setting, details and structure.

As your story unfolds on the page, learn how to tell it with the candor and heart that connect to readers. 

2. Writing a Book in 30 Days / Abby L. Vandiver. Writing a novel can be a daunting task. But it doesn't have to take years or unending drafts to get that manuscript finished. Learn what it takes to get a first draft completed in thirty days! This can help all writers, aspiring or advanced.

3. Picture Books from Start to Finish / Lindsay Ward. Join picture book author and illustrator Lindsay Ward as she discusses the step-by-step process of making a picture book.
