A lot of writing advice focuses on getting the author across the finish line, only to realize there are a series of finish lines after that that are just as creative and rewarding. In “You finished your first draft, now what?” Matthew LeDrew, author of over fifteen novels, will take you through the process of refining and making your manuscript the best it possibly can be in easy to follow, straight-forward steps. Many authors judge themselves too harshly on their first drafts: that piece of coal can be polished into a diamond, and you can have fun doing it. 🙂
Tentatively scheduled for Sunday August 27th from 5-55:50PM.
The Writer’s Block will be a series of panels arranged in chronological order for those keeping notes, with the first panels on Friday being aimed towards coming up with ideas and starting your manuscript, and the final panels on Sunday being about getting your work published! We’re going to take you through it all!
In total, The Writer’s Block will be nearly twenty-three hours of writing-and-publishing related help, of the sort that would normally be valued at hundreds of dollars, all for the low-cost of an Avalon Expo 3 ticket.
Avalon Expo 3 Costs:
Child Weekend: $5
Regular Weekend in Advance: $40
Regular Weekend at the Door: $45
Infinity Weekend: $175 (only available in advance)
Stay tuned here to Engen Books and on the Avalon Expo Facebook page as every few days we peel back one of the blacked-out slots on the banner above and reveal one of the epic courses that will be taking place, with some that will surprise you… including a Top Secret event that everyone’s going to want to attend 😉
Happy Writing! Hope to see you all there!
