    Writers are often asked to bleed onto the page, to suffer for their art. But what is often lost in this concept of writer as laborer is the sense of delight and curiosity that lead many to writing. In today's discussion, we'll join special guest, Derek Berry, in exploring how failure, accidents, and games can push us to discover new possibilities. Topics will include experimentation over expertise, daring over drudgery, and persistence over perfection. Come prepared to share your ideas!

    In his 2010 memoir My Reading Life, Pat Conroy shared two fascinating—and seemingly contradictory—metaphors for writerly inspiration: the burning man he encountered in Rome and the tortoises he encountered with writer (and Our Prince of Scribes contributing essayist) Jonathan Carroll in Vienna. We’ll discuss both of those metaphors as instructive examples of how we can turn our memories into our stories. This session will include discussion of the writer’s craft and sources of inspiration as well as interactive writing prompts.

    Ever tried to reduce your 70,000+ word manuscript to a 2-page synopsis or 1-page query? It’s tough isn’t it? There’s something even shorter—the pitch—and it can open doors when you have mere seconds to grab an agent’s or publisher’s attention. In most cases, you have time for 140 words or less. That’s a pitch. A well-crafted pitch will invite the response:  Tell me more.

    Taught by an author who used her pitch to get three requests for full manuscripts, this workshop will show you how to eliminate excess information and trim your story down to the bare essentials. Using tried and true formulas, writers will begin to craft their pitches. Special guest, Barbara Evers, will share insight on how you can use your pitch to reach out to agents during Twitter’s pitch wars. Added bonus? This process will help you focus your query letter, too.

    This workshop is designed to blast through your blocks and help you generate a ton of vibrant, new material in a short timeframe. The workshop leader will guide you through a rapid succession of generative exercises, employing both formal and informal prompts (e.g., photographs, abecedarian, monostich, made-up words, five senses, ekphrasis, word-by-word imitation). You will leave the workshop with a wheelbarrow of gritty gemstones to finesse later into individual poems or prose. Dust off your Harley and come ready to ditch that comfort zone! (Prose writers welcome!)
