Upcoming Writing Workshops From Janice Hardy (Seattle Area)

By Janice Hardy, @Janice_Hardy

It's a fun and busy fall this year, and I'm presenting one more workshops in October. If you're in the Seattle, WA area and are looking for some nice and meaty workshop to dig into, give this one a try.

October 16th

How Point of View Can Improve Your Writing

This master class is part of the RWA Emerald City Writers' Conference in Seattle, WA. You can register for just the master class or make it part of your full conference (where I'll also be presenting my, "It's Showtime! Show, Don't Tell" workshop).

Point of view is the single-best tool a writer has in their toolkit. With it, you can avoid common pitfalls such as telling, not showing, infodumping, too much backstory, and reactive characters. A strong point of view helps you decide what details and to share, how a characters will react in any situations, and even makes plotting easier. In this workshop, writers will learn how to see their story from the eyes of their characters (no matter which point of view they use) and how that unique perspective can make their novels stronger.

When: Friday, October 16, 9am-noon (half day workshop)

Where: Westin Hotel, Bellevue, WA

Cost: $50

  1. I am already registered for the conference and for your Master Class! Looking forward to it.

    1. Sweet! Looking forward to meeting you :)

  2. Awe man! I want to go to one of your workshops. When are you making the trip to Chicago?

    1. I don't know. I've yet to do anything in the Midwest band at all, so I'll have to see if there are any opportunities (cons/festivals/etc) out that way.

  3. I just attended this workshop. It was really good. Good information, good practical applications. I would definitely take more workshops from Janice.
