Layering as an Editing Tool with Cassandra Carr
Have you ever finished the first draft of a book and thought it was missing something, but you weren't sure what? That "what" is probably layering - the process of adding details to your story, from character traits to body language to descriptions of the environment surrounding your story. Each type of layering will be described, complete with examples, and then you'll have the chance to try your hand at layering your own work, with critiques from me on how you did.
Writing Sports Romance
Date: August 7 - 20 (Link to register coming soon!)
Sports romance is one of the fastest-growing subgenres, and this course will teach you how to write compelling, realistic stories. You’ll learn about the specific personality traits of elite athletes, what their day-to-day lives are like, how to describe the atmosphere in a locker room, and other details you’ll need to make your book the best it can be.
Win when writing for an anthology
Ever wondered how authors find themselves involved in an anthology, or how they find the right anthology to showcase their work?
Just like selling your book to the right publisher, choosing the right anthology for your story can make all the difference. There is tons of great advice on how to pick a publisher, but how do you figure out which anthology is best for you?
In this workshop, you will learn how to determine if a particular anthology is good for you and the nitty-gritty details you need to keep in mind once you've agreed. We'll also go through the process itself from acceptance to release.
- What truly goes in with a group of authors working on an anthology or a bundle,
- What to expect and what you need to know,
- What to watch out for,
- The pros of an anthology or bundle,
- And cons of being part of an anthology or bundle.
