It is time, you tell yourself, to attend a writers’ conference—or maybe a convention—or what about that expo you have heard about? But you pause. You wonder if it is worth all of the expense. You wonder if there aren’t other conferences you should go to instead. Join the Write Pack as they explore how to discover where to go, what to expect, and what to do at these events.
In this episode we discuss:
Writers’ Digest Writers Conference
Saint Louis Writers Guild
Writers in the Park (a free writers’ conference in St Louis in August)
Missouri Writer’s Conference
Pacific Northwest Writers Association Conference
Finding agents at conferences
How to choose a conference
What to do at a conference
Sociability at a conference
Promoting your book at a conference
Lit in the Lou
Brooklyn Book Festival
The three stages of going to a conference, convention, and expo
You can find the Write Pack on Facebook, Twitter, Blog Talk Radio, and iTunes.
In this episode we have special guest, history fiction author J.F. Ridgley. We also introduce a new member to The Write Pack: Meredith Tate
Critique groups, partners and beta readers are a low stake experience that can be similar to that of an editor, agent, or publisher. So you have written a short story or a novel and are told you should find a critique group? Maybe a Critique Partner? And what is this odd thing called Beta Readers? Are they a pond filled of piranhas? Are they necessary steps to getting published? Why are they so important? Aren’t they always filled with just failed writers who are bitter and waiting to rip things up?
Is there a difference between college writing critique groups and commercial writing critique groups? Do they replace editors? Are they like a movie’s favorite private screening feedback group?
Should these people ever be a loved one, family member, or close friend?
What defines a good beta reader, critique group or partner? What kind of feedback should you expect to receive? What makes good usable criticism? And what is the “sandwich effect”?
How do you know if you are ready for a critique group, partner or beta reader?
What makes a bad beta reader, critique group or partner? When you break up with a group or partner like breaking up with a lover?
How do you find critique groups or critique partners writing in your genre?
Beware of the critique giver who is trying to mold you into an image of their own method. Also beware of turning it into “social hour.”
Write Pack explores writing from fiction based on the headlines. Writing fiction from the headlines is a form of immediate writing. Is it possible to write fiction from the headlines or is this a luxury saved for the TV and Comic book media? Is it possible to do this with other forms of writings?
Do you have to be a superhuman fast writer where you produce 50 books a year? Or is it a crap shoot of timing where you can’t predict it? Do you have to pick a long running trend to be able to write fiction based on the headlines and keep it relevant? For example—murder, bulling, so on…. Or should you be a futurist and focus on science fiction?
Is writing from the headlines really just a form of research? Does it have to be immediate? Can it be too soon?
How do you keep your stories relevant when your story comes out? If it is too soon it might turn off the audience and the writer runs the possible of inaccuracy.
Can you use the headlines to write historical fiction? Mystery? Science Fiction? Fantasy? Real Crime? Other genres?
On the other side of the coin: When do you start to feel like a vulture or a writer version of an ambulance chaser? Can the trends burn out?
Another way to use the headlines is to write a reformation book. Grab a cause and write about it as there is nothing better than passion.
The Write Pack explores the questions about violence in fiction. What is an appropriate level of violence in a story? Of course this all depends on the genre and the story, but when is it over the top? It depends on the unwritten contract between the author and the reader. Does the violence have to be on stage or can it happen in the background? Is the story about violence or does the violence need to reflect the story?
How much violence is needed for the story? Does the violence exist to exist? How does violence move the story forward? How is violence appropriate in the world of the story? What kind of message is the author sending with the violence?
Has the level and focus of violence changed in all the media over the last decade and more? Has the level of violence in Children’s Literature changed?
When does violence kick the reader out of the story? When does violence seem cartoonish?
What kind of violence is never allowed?
Is there typical victims of violence in the story? Do you have Red Shirts or Storm Troopers in your story? Are there certain characters that have to die?
What is the choice of the violence? How does it reflect the character? How does it show their emotions?
How does violence in one story effect other stories in a series or does the series reset?
What is the psychology of violence?
