Not quite ready for the advanced coaching of Michael Hauge? Good news. We're also offering appointments with Plot Doctor and author Louise Knott Ahern for beginning/intermediate writers who are looking for some one-on-one advice with their novels.
In each 30-minute session, Louise will work with writers individually on character, plot, and conflict based on the principles in her PLOT THE DAMN BOOK workshop. These appointments are open to both CCWA members and non-members.
THESE APPOINTMENTS WILL BE SCHEDULED INDIVIDUALLY BETWEEN LOUISE AND THE WRITER AND DO NOT HAVE TO BE HELD DURING CONFERENCE HOURS IN ORDER TO AVOID TOO MUCH DISRUPTION OF YOUR CONFERENCE SCHEDULE. If you purchase a plot doctor appointment, Louise will contact you directly in January to schedule your appointment time.
Length: 30 minutes
Number available: 10
THE "Market your damn book" lunch
You have to eat, right? Why not network and learn at the same time? Join us for lunch at the Kellogg Center and learn from a panel of published authors about how they landed their agents.
Because we have to give our final lunch numbers to the Kellogg Center two weeks before the event, the deadline to register for lunch is Jan. 6.
