June 10 – 14:  Is one of my favorite times of the year. It’s a great place to be if you want to strengthen you writing, up your marketing game or just learn from some amazing writers. Maybe you just want to spend an indescribable week with other people that hear voices in their heads (writers).

This year they will have agents you can pitch too.

If you write or want to write, you need to head out to Canyon Texas. West Texas Writers’ Academy is on the West Texas A&M campus. I will be leading a class for Alumni, but there are many other to choose from if it’s your first time. I’ve went as a student in 2013 and have not missed a year since.

Are you in the Amarillo area? Monday  June 10 There is a Writers’ Roundup. There is more information in the link below.

My favorite week n my writing life is just around the corner.  West Texas A&M Writer’s Academy hosted by Jodi Thomas.

I will spend five days with a small group of writers led by Alexandra Sokoloff to brainstorm, stretch our story, twist the plot points and turn the predictable into the unexpected.

May the 24th I got to visit with a wonderful group of writers in the Dallas area, DARA and shared a little bit of what I’ve learned about story structure. Below is my powerpoint, a blank chart and  a picture of my story board.
