Workshop on writing and craft

Southern Oregon Willamette Writers is offering a workshop by book editor Elizabeth Lyon that will benefit poets and prose writers alike. On Saturday May 2, starting at 10:30 a.m., “How to Give Your Writing Character and Depth,” will provide workshop attendees lessons on imagery, comparisons and adding depth to your writing. The class is divided into two segments. The morning presentation, “Like an Alley Cat on Steroids” is from 10 a.m., to noon and will focus on crafting imagery appropriate to your characters, settings, objects, actions, themes, and time or era. The afternoon presentation, “Character + Scene + Subtext = Suspense and Theme” is 1:30-3:30, and will focus on crafting characters, engaging the reader and creating suspense.

Elizabeth Lyon, a book editor since 1988, has worked with hundreds of writers, seeing publication of over 60 clients. Lyon has written many books on the craft and marketing of fiction and nonfiction, including bestselling “Nonfiction Book Proposals Anybody Can Write,” “Sell Your Novel Tool Kit,” and “Manuscript Makeover.” She is also the author of two short books, “Writing Subtext” and “Crafting Titles.”

The morning workshop is free to members of the Willamette Writers and $10 for non-members. The afternoon workshop is $25.00 for members, $30.00 for non-members, or $35 for both.
