Sunday, November 8 from (11AM-12PM)
Erin Bow will talk about pacing, when to pause for details and when to leave them out.
After the first two workshops, Heather Smith and Erin Bow will provide students with writing prompts. The workshop participants can use these prompts to develop a piece of writing of up to 1500 words to send to the Heather and Erin for feedback. The workshop participants will then give their piece some extra polish in preparation for a “read-around” at the final workshop.
