Angela Ackerman, our expected keynote presenter, has had to step down for this year (she promises she’ll be back next year). She lives in Canada, and with the Covid-craziness, we’re not even sure the border will be open for travel by October.
But never fear, we have a new key presenter. Meet Tiffany Yates Martin! Here’s her bio:
Tiffany Yates Martin has spent nearly thirty years as an editor in the publishing industry, working with major publishers and bestselling authors as well as newer writers, and is the author of Intuitive Editing: A Creative and Practical Guide to Revising Your Writing. She’s led workshops and seminars for conferences and writers’ groups across the country and is a frequent contributor to writers’ sites and publications. Visit her at www.foxprinteditorial.com, and connect on Facebook and Twitter.
Tiffany will be presenting:
The Holy Trinity of Story—the Three Tentpoles: The basis of story rests on a balanced foundation of three key elements: character, plot, and stakes. This workshop shows authors how to make sure these crucial elements are finely developed and polished to set their story apart and hook readers, agents, and publishers. She’ll show authors in clear steps how to take complex story concepts and distill them into digestible ideas and easily actionable techniques to more clearly see and assess their own work, and improve their storytelling and craft using a variety of practical “shortcuts” and tools, real-world examples, and optional hands-on demonstrations (“live edits”) with authors’ WIPs.
