Our 2014 RT Booklovers Convention officially starts on Wednesday, May 14, but did you know Monday and Tuesday are jampacked with pre-convention activities? No? In addition to our awesome Tuesday reader events, we've also got some great activities for writers, too!
First up we have Linnea Sinclair and Stacey Kade’s Pre-Con Writer’s Boot Camp! This exciting writing intensive will take aspiring authors on a two-day learning spree full of panels and workshops. There’s an optional meet-and-greet dinner Sunday night, but the official boot camp begins on Monday with breakfast and an introduction focusing on what it means to write for publication. Some particularly enticing panels include Monday’s “Goal, Motivation and Conflict” and “”Advanced Plotting Theories.” The fun continues through Tuesday and attendees will be treated to even more inspiring panels, including “Conquering the Query & Synopsis” and “Industry Panel: The Agent/Editor/Pros Tell-All!,” an informative Q&A with a group of editors and agents.
