One of our last lectures, from 2:30-3:30 on August 27 2017, involves script-writing at the art of turning your work into script-format! This is a popular discussion when we have qualified writers present to speak on it, and thankfully the Avalon Expo sponsored guest Ali House (The Six Elemental) is an playwright in her own right! 🙂
House is coming prepared to sprinkle in her knowledge with a geeky twist, with notes on science-fiction, dystopian future, superhero, and YA fantasy scriptwriting tips and tricks.
A native Newfoundlander, Alison is a graduate of the Fine Arts program at Sir Wilfred Grenfell College (MUN). She currently resides in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where she works in arts administration and spends more time than a person should in and around theaters.
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!
