This weekend is the annual LDStorymakers Writers Conference in Utah and writers from around the midwest and further have congregated in brute force. Over 600 of us are milling around the Utah Valley Convention Center attending lectures and intensive workshops to improve our craft.
Last night I attended a Publication Primer workshop, which is six hours of combing through the first 10 pages of the manuscripts of the members of your table finding ways to make prose stronger (and more likely to be picked up by an agent or publisher). My table was moderated by the talented Amy Winehouse of Eschler Editing.
I’ve already brushed shoulders with writing super star and NY Time Bestseller David Farland, we shared an elevator on the way out.
Should you happen to be at the conference come find me and say hi! I’ll be wearing a grey fedora.
Expect a full report on Monday!
I’m looking forward to the rest of the weekend and will give a full report on Monday.
