Join C.M. Mayo at 12:15 for a brief reading from the novel The Last Prince of the Mexican Empire during the conference lunch. Then, at 3:15 pm, C.M. Mayo leads a 90 minute workshop: "Techniques of Fiction: A Supersonic Overview"
For both beginning and experienced fiction writers, this 90 minute mini-workshop covers a broad array of techniques, from the basic to the rare, for creating and sustaining the "vivid dream" or "virtual reality" in the reader's mind. We will look at at specificity, point of view, synthesia, imagery, image patterning, plot, rhythm, and the use and misuse of dialogue. The goal is that the next time you sit down to write, your fiction will be of notably better quality.
