Reminder: Writing Workshop With Janice Hardy

 There's about a week left before my writing workshop at FoxTale Book Shoppe in Woodstock, GA. If you haven't signed up yet but want to, give them a call or click the link at the bottom.

View to a Skill: How Point of View Can Cure Your Common Writing Problems
Instructor: Janice Hardy, Author of The Healing Wars: The Shifter and The Healing Wars: Blue Fire (Published by Balzer & Bray/Harper Collins)

COST: $60
WHERE: FoxTale Book Shoppe, 105 E. Main St., #138, Woodstock, GA 30188

As young adult fiction continues to grow as a writing genre, so does the demand for quality, publishable writing. If you are currently writing young adult fiction with an eye towards publishing, you will not want to miss this unique opportunity to work with an expert in the field. Join novelist Janice Hardy for this half-day workshop that focuses on how point-of-view can fix commonly seen problems in your manuscript: telling, not showing, info-dumping, back story, weak character goals and motivations, low stakes, and more. Bring those frustrating sections of your book, and work with Janice to get inside the head of your character and help you get your story moving in the right direction. So that workshop participants can get the most out of this period of instruction, the class will be capped at fifteen attendees. Sign up today by linking to and registering online, or call FoxTale at: 770/516-9989.
