Writers today face an uphill climb. The competition is fierce, the learning curve steep. To help flatten the learning curve, hundreds of writers have benefited from the Novel in a Day Workshop, presented by award-winning author Vic DiGenti. On Saturday, March 1, DiGenti will present the full-day workshop in Jacksonville for first time in more than a year.

DiGenti, who wrote the award-winning adventure/fantasy Windrusher trilogy before adopting the Parker Francis pen name and penning the Quint Mitchell Mystery series, said, “The Novel in a Day workshop packs a year’s worth of learning into a daylong interactive session. It’s filled with group and individual writing exercises, practical information, and enough entertainment value to make the 8-hours pass quickly.”

The workshop is for both beginning writers and more advanced writers looking for new insights, providing writers with the tools needed to craft their own novel.

Topics covered include:

  • Elements of plot and structure
  • Creating characters that sizzle
  • Secrets of good dialogue
  • Creating strong beginnings. middles and ends
  • Writing in scene
  • Tips for self-editing
