Novel in a Day Workshop Sponsored by MAD about Words

Novel in a Day – Back by Popular Demand!

Vic DiGenti is a superb instructor and offered a well-organized, interactive workshop. Great takeaway. A good session for both novice and experienced writers. –Nancy Fox
Writers today face an uphill climb. The competition is fierce, the learning curve steep. There’s no magic wand, but by learning the basic techniques for crafting a novel, the beginning writer can quickly flatten the learning curve.

Novel in a Day Workshop packs a year’s worth of learning into a day-long interactive session filled with practical advice and solid instruction. For both beginning writers and more advanced pros looking for new insights, this workshop provides writers with the tools needed to craft their own novel—a novel that will grab a reader’s attention and keep them turning the pages.

Here are some of the topics covered:
  • Elements of plot and structure
  • Creating characters that sizzle
  • Secrets of good dialogue
  • Crafting strong beginnings, middles and ends
  • Deciphering point of view
  • Tips for self-editing
Vic DiGenti is the instructor for this up-beat and fast-paced workshop. Vic is the author of three award-winning adventure/fantasy novels, Windrusher, Windrusher and the Cave of Tho-hoth, and Windrusher and the Trail of Fire (Ocean Publishing). His unpublished mystery, Matanzas Bay, won the 2007 Josiah Bancroft Award and was named a Book of the Year in the 2009 Royal Palm Literary Awards Competition. It was recently published under the pen name Parker Francis as both an ebook and a trade paperback.

Vic is a regional director and board member of Florida Writers’ Association, a member of Florida Sisters in Crime, and Mystery Writers of America.
