The Doctor Is In
We’re very pleased to have the book doctor, Robyn Conley, speak to us on Saturday, September 15, 2018. Robyn has been helping writers publish for over twenty years. In addition to holding workshops, she taught the mechanics of writing at TCU and UTA universities.
This meeting we’ll have both a morning and afternoon session – a sort of one day workshop.
Need help with characters? Robyn will devote the morning to DRIVING YOUR CHARACTER: HOW TO DEVELOP A WELL-ROUNDED PROTAGONIST. She’ll also have interactive exercises that help layer emotional and physical depth to main characters.
The hour-long afternoon session from 1:00 to 2:00 – SELF-EDITING WITHOUT SELF-DESTRUCTING – will feature a checklist of sample editing tips. If you’re struggling to get your manuscript in shape to publish, this will be an excellent class.
If you would like help with your W-I-P, the doctor is in. All you have to do is show up.
Robyn has graciously offered to read and critique the first two pages of your manuscript, but she’ll need it ahead of time. She requires that it be two pages only, in Courier 12 font, double-spaced.
Send those to Robyn Conley, 6376 CR 252, Clyde, Texas 79510.
Then make plans to attend the September meeting.
Robyn co-founded and led the Writer’s Group of Fort Worth for over a decade in addition to speaking at writing conferences around the country. She has a passion for helping writers and showing them what their manuscripts are missing.
She’s also a writer herself with thirteen published books.
Take advantage of her expertise and attend the September meeting. You’ll come away a better writer.
