Bestselling authors Rita Gerlach and Roseanna White will be teaching valuable information on what it means to inspire your readers, how to make your writing capture their attention, how to flesh out characters, and how to make every sentence count. The theme will be novel writing. Author Vickie Fisher will be sharing ‘From an Oyster to a Pearl’  a workshop aimed at giving the self-sabotaging writer tools to realize their dream of going from a writer to an author.

Rita15-2‘Writing to Inspire’: Rita Gerlach

Writing outstanding fiction that inspires readers should be the believing writer’s goal. The days we live in are increasingly difficult, and many people are discouraged. A believing writer can bring encouragement and comfort, and a respite from the world, both in Christian circles and to the unbelieving by developing characters and story lines that readers can relate to.  But first the writer must be inspired. Rita will open the workshop with keys on narrative writing, dialogue, and setting,  that will help you develop great fiction.
