Bearlodge Writers to Host Maine Author for Workshop Sept. 24, Sundance WY
In the intermediate-level workshop, Callan Rogers will guide fellow writers through the process of crafting a novel. “I’m going to trace the journey of [my novel] Red Ruby Heart in a Cold Blue Sea from the moment I first heard my main character’s voice to publication and marketing,” she says. “We’ll be talking about the idea, voice, character development, plot twists, narrative lines and arcs, setting, dialogue, revision and the book as a whole.”
For a fee-per-page the author will also read and critique eight manuscripts of up to five pages from workshop attendees, electronically submitted to her before September 14. She will meet with these writers after the workshop to discuss their work.
The author holds an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Southern Maine and is a former member of Bearlodge Writers of Sundance. The workshop, sponsored by Bearlodge Writers and supported by Sundance State Bank, will cost $50 per person. Lunch is included.
For more information or to preregister for the event (by September 7, please!) contact Ayme Ahrens at (307) 399-2000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
