Devon Ellington's Writing Blitz
Author Devon Ellington announces new publication of novellas, short stories, and an upcoming play.
By: Fearless Ink
Ellington balances her writing career with working backstage on Broadway, publishing under a half a dozen names in fiction and non-fiction. Her work appears in publications as diverse as FEMMEFAN, NEW MYTHS, VISION, BLESSED GARDENS, THEMA, THE SAVVY GAL, TOASTED CHEESE, THE SCRUFFY DOG REVIEW, ESPRESSO FICTION, WILD CHILD, THE ROSE AND THORN, HAMPTON FAMILY LIFE, THE ARMCHAIR DETECTIVE, and ELLE.
“My time working backstage definitely made me a better writer,” she says. “Listening to shows evolve night after night gave me a firm foundation in character development, structure, and dialogue. It’s as relevant to prose and non-fiction as to playwrighting. Plus, I’ve gotten to work with wonderful people, on and off stage. All those experiences coalesce in the work.”
She just finished teaching her popular “Dialogue Workshop” for the second consecutive year at the internationally acclaimed Muse Online Writers’ Conference, and plans to mentor a small group of writers for her fourth foray into National Novel Writing Month in November. “Last year, I mentored thirty-four writers while doing my own work,” she says. “It was a little much.”
She provides business writing services to a wide variety of international clients, teaches workshops, offers affordable e-booklet downloads for writers through the Devon Ellington Website (www.devonellingtonwork.com/
