Local authors invited to upcoming writers’ conference

October 29, 2016 by  

Professional and amateur penmen alike are welcome to attend an upcoming conference that has been planned for Stroudsburg.

This will be the fourth year for the Annual Pocono Writers Conference, which will include presentations by guest speakers on an assortment of topics intended to help participants become better authors. The sessions include ones addressing how to determine a work’s genre, describing fight scenes in a way that is both realistic and exciting, writing from both a first and third person perspective, building worlds, and common mistakes new writers make. There will also be time for a panel discussion with the experts, and networking with other authors.

In addition to the presentations and networking, there will be critiquing sessions where local writers can have their works assessed. These are being offered at a price of $20 each. Since the number of spaces for this is limited, those who are interested are asked to preregister well ahead of time to reserve their space.

The event has been organized by the Pocono Writers Group for January 21 from 9:00 am until 4:30 pm at the Hughes Library in Stroudsburg. Tickets are free, and each critiquing session is $20 each. Poster printing can help promote functions like this throughout the area.

All those who would like to sign up to participate can do so though the conference’s Eventbrite page.
