Hints for Writers from the Clarksville Writers’ Conference 2015

 

Clarksville Writers ConferenceClarksville, TN – Having trouble getting your novel finished? The speakers at the Clarksville Writers’ Conference 2015 had some of the answers you need.

During the first session on Thursday morning, Book Architecture advocate Stuart Horwitz lectured on the three drafts of your novel. Describing the “pantsers” and the “outliners” as two different types of writers who approach the novel in opposite ways, he then blended the two methods to show how each is essential for the final product.

Clarksville Writers’ Conference 2015: One Reader to Another

 

Clarksville Writers ConferenceClarksville, TN – Here’s an open secret that you should know. The Clarksville Writers’ Conference at Austin Peay State University is not for writers alone. Avid readers are allowed too.

If you are addicted to mysteries like I am, you are probably familiar with the work of Sharyn McCrumb. In my humble opinion, her novel, She Walks These Hills, is one of the top ten best books I’ve ever read. It’s just one of the long list of great novels she has written.

Sharyn McCrumb going to be in Clarksville at the Authors’ Dinner on Thursday night (June 4th) at the new stadium and you can hear her for a mere $50.00 fee (you get to eat too!) If you hurry, you might just get a seat at the table. (Go to google and search “Clarksville Writers’ Conference 2015″ and sign up immediately!) Who knows when you’ll ever have this chance again?
