The Symposium is for writers of all ages and at all stages in their writing life. Sessions will include discussions on showing and telling in prose and dialogue; marketing for authors with e-books; the craft of writing mysteries; getting from page to screen or stage; tips on creating great characters, plot, voice and setting; setting up and guiding critique groups; and creating a hook in the first paragraph.
