Creating Original Worlds
Presented by Lindsay Schopfer
Saturday, November 1, 2014
1:00 - 3:00 pm

Each time a writer begins a new story they have an opportunity to take their readers to places they have never been before. This technique in world building is not exclusive to writing fantasy or science fiction. Creating the world for your character is critical, whether you are writing a series that takes place on a distant planet, or in your own backyard. Participants in this course will learn creative ways to do their world building, and answer some essential questions as to why they feel that their world must take place in Seattle, Washington, instead of Dallas, Texas, or the planet Venus, instead of a planet far, far away.


Freelance Article Writing: Get Paid to Write
Presented by Terry Persun
Saturday, November 15, 2014
1:00 - 3:00 pm

Published author, Terry Persun, will discuss how to get paid to write articles. There are magazines, newsletters, websites, and newspapers that cover literally every subject you can think up. These venues need material daily to continue publishing. Think of the magazines you read and love, and the subjects you know and understand, and start putting the two together. Whether your interest is in craft-making and fiber products, or electronics and software there are general and niche markets that need content. This session will discuss the details needed to enter into the market of writing for the many publications and website looking for your work.
