Tickety tock, tockety tick. If you’re going to UnCon, you’d better act quick…
The Early-Bird rate will expire at midnight, EST, and we are now at 90% capacity!
Who will be at UnCon?
In addition to ~115 authors in progress, Lisa Cron and Donald Maass will be there to each deliver an intensive 4-hour workshop. Our Monday-Friday program will also offer sessions led by:
Anne Greenwood Brown
Lisa Cron (more Lisa!)
Donald Maass (more Don!)
AND our latest WU contributor to join UnCon, the ever-delightful Sarah Callender!
What are the sessions?
There will be more than twenty 90-minute sessions offered throughout our M-F program. Though some ideas are still evolving, our program will include the following:
Writing True, I (the natural world/external)
Writing True, II (the internal world/character)
Pushing Through Resistance
Creating Conversation (critique workshop)
Emotional Turning Points
The Writing-Life Balance
The Weave of Subplots, Secondary Characters and Flashbacks
The World of the Scene
Tips & Tricks for Plotting the Plot
Level Up: Making the Good Great
The Impact of Language
The Questing Writer
Write Like You Mean It
The Psychology of Writer’s Block (workshop)
Crafting Your Unique Story
We’ll have at least one panel, possibly more.
Lisa Cron’s 4-hour workshop on Story Genius will very likely blow your mind, and change the way you approach storytelling.
Donald Maass’s 4-hour workshop on Unboxed Craft will teach you tricks you didn’t know existed, and inspire you to consider where they’ll fit into your manuscript then and there.
Not official sessions but notable (and way fun) just the same:
A Flash Fiction Challenge
Night Writing at The House of the Seven Gables
Evening Book Therapy
Book-signing Event — and a ‘coming out party’ for our book, Author in Progress
Cold Lunch, Hot Topic Lunches
And, put on your red shoes and dance the blues at Friday night’s David Bowie Dance Party.
Again, early registration ends tonight at midnight, EST. Learn more and register at authorinprogress.eventbrite.com.
We hope to see you in Salem! Until then, write on.
