A WRITER FOR LIFE PRESENTS: REVISE AND SUBMIT SEMINAR



 Drowning in Edits? Need a lifeline?

Come join published author and conference teacher Jaimie M. Engle during a 2-part REVISE AND SUBMIT SEMINAR on December 2nd and 16th at 6:30 in the Albertson Room of the Orlando Public Library located at 101 E. Central Street in Downtown Orlando, Florida.

“Your presentation was one of the most powerful sessions I’ve attended. Thank you for your generous sharing of information.”–SCBWI 2014 June Conference attendee

Revision is the most important component to crafting your novel. This step, done properly, will separate the amateur hobby writer from the author with an agent and book contract. Editing is not a simple process where only grammar and mechanics are tweaked. It is a complete overhaul that requires many layers of purposed storytelling that must read and sound natural and organic.
Many authors know about the main pillars of novel construction, such as character, plot, setting, and theme. In this course, we will discuss:

• Plotting Coincidence
• Forcing Change
• Motivation & Lies
• Tension
• Parallels
• Calm Before Storms
• Seeing the Story god
• Query Letters
• Submissions

Jaimie M. Engle has written professionally since 2003. In 2013, she published her first middle-grade novel along with more than 100 short stories and articles in journals and e-mags throughout the world. She is represented by Pam van Hylckama Vlieg of D4EO Literary, is a regular conference speaker, and offers a mentor & editing service for aspiring writers at http://www.awriterforlife.com.
