See You at LTUE on Friday

My schedule has changed. You can see the updates below. As I said before, LTUE is one of the best writing conferences around. There are going to be quite a few authors there sharing tips on craft and the business of writing. BTW, it’s NOT going to be held in the Wilkinson Center as it has been in the past, but in the Conference Center on the NORTH side of campus. See map below. Find the full schedule here.

Romance vs. Story with Romantic Elements: Injecting romance into saving the world

  • Panel 
  • John Brown (Moderator),  Ami Chopine, Stacy Whitman, Lynn Kurland
  • FRIDAY: 12 pm – 1 pm

Plotstorming from Character: In some cases the plot of a book drives the characters. However, characters that instead drive the plot can make for a more compelling story. In this hour, we focus on how to grow your plot from your main characters.

  • Presentation
  • Paul Genesse (I want to hear what Paul has to say; I think this will be interesting)
  • FRIDAY: 3 PM – 4 PM

    I will be there, and I plan to attend your workshop on killer story ideas. I attended your workshop on writing a story that rocks at LTUE last year and it gave me a huge writing boost. Is this the same workshop? I’m really looking forward to that again this year!

    I loved your last year’s presentation, and I’ve been mining the On Writing part of your site for quite some time. There is so much to learn there. I’m so grateful to you for taking the time to write and post all of this information.

    Family events are such that I cannot attend LTUE again this year (nursing baby and other things). Will your presentations be filmed and on YouTube again? Please, please say yes–especially the Lessons on Story from the Hunger Games.

    Similar, but more focused. The one last year tried to do everything. This time we’re going to focus in on creative principles, specifically those used to generate ideas.

  4. Ben says:

    Excellent! That’s the part I liked the most.

  5. John Brown says:

    Yes, Kate. Both will be recorded 🙂
