Showing and Telling in Memoir

Cascade 1 & 2

8:00 a.m. – 9:30 a.m.

Presented by: William Kenower

NONFICTION & MEMOIR TRACK

 

Memoirs should ideally read much like a work of fiction written in the first person.

In this class we’ll look at how to use physical description – showing action – to both tell a story and convey the emotional content of the story.

Tricks of the trade: Historical Writing That Rings True 

Cascade 3 & 4

8:00 a.m. – 9:30 a.m.

The characters in our historical novels do not act in isolation. Their stories are brought to life by the broader sweep of history, and by how people thought and lived in former times. But how do we as 21st century authors access the thinking and experiences of the past? And what do we include, and not include, in our scenes? Presentation offers methods of accessing former times -- “portals” into the past – and ways to bring history alive on the page.

CRAFT OF WRITING

3-HOUR MASTER CLASS

 

When starting a new story, one of the first choices writers must make is what point of view to use. Will you go with the old workhorse of third-person limited, or do you want something more intimate like first person? Maybe you want the power of third-person omniscient, or you’re going out on a limb with second-person epistolary. It will be difficult to change after the first draft, so you need to choose wisely. Join the Mythcreants editing team as we discuss how to do just that. We’ll cover the strengths and weaknesses of different narrative styles, discuss what type of stories work well with each style, and describe what happens when stories have the wrong perspective. While we’re at it, we’ll give tips on writing each point of view well.

Cascade 5 & 6

10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m

Presented by: Amber Cowie

LITERARY/MAINSTREAM

There are two types of people who write novels.

After going through a rigorous development edit, it was pointed out to Amber that her main character had been pregnant for seventeen months and several of her minor characters had changed names, eye color and age throughout the novel, she realized that she needed to become an outliner. This workshop is designed to work through the fundamentals of a novel outline, timeline and synopsis.

Presented by: Gerri Russell

ROMANCE/WOMEN’S FICTION

 

Creating sexual tension is the driving force at the center of romantic fiction, yet many writers struggle to create that tension on the page and make it believable. Contrary to popular belief, sexual tension is not all about physical attraction.

Gerri Russell guides you through the science behind building sexual tension and how these techniques can help you create realistic characters and relationships in your writing.

Worlds of Fantasy – And How to Build Them

Cascade 13

10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m

Presented by: Chris (CC) Humphreys

FANTASY & PARANORMAL

 

Fantasy is an extraordinarily varied and fantastic genre. From the loftiness of Lord of the Rings to the grim-dark of Game of Thrones, from dystopia to comedy, from fabulous beasts to blood-sucking villains, there appears no limit to an author’s visions. But does its vast scope make it easier to write than other genres? Chris will consider the excitements, the practicalities, and the difficulties of writing fantasy fiction. He will tackle the myth that less research is required in fantasy, how a world, however fantastical, must be credible and coherent within itself, how to use dialogue to evoke character in realms unknown, and how to take the risk of making your made-up worlds truly different, while maintaining believability. There will also be “the dragon exercise”: how to take one of fantasy’s favorite themes and use it in entirely new ways.

The Rule of 3's for Historical Fiction

Cascade 3 & 4

2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Presented by: Larry Fowler

Narratives are at the center of recorded history because we attach ourselves to stories. Well-told stories help us make sense of the world and often pinpoint how or why things went right or wrong. Readers gravitate to historical fiction to get a deeper understanding of the people and events that brought us into the present. Learning from the past can help us forge a better future. Explore: 3 words to remember, 3 detours to avoid, 3 connections to make, 3-point turns to navigate, and 3 moments to get right.
