The Windsor International Writers Conference presents…
Writing Point of View
Saturday, July 7, 2018
10:15 a.m. – 12:00 noon
Ambassador Bridge Holiday Inn, 1855 Huron Church Road, Windsor, Ontario  (Map here.)
A novel (or novella or short story) is not a series of events; it’s not just a character's actions or the working out of a conflict. A novel is somebody’s story; it’s a subjective telling of events; a character’s or a narrator’s take on things, their perspective, delivered through their voice. So point of view is not just a set of rules about being consistent and not head-hopping or committing other horrors; point of view quite simply is your novel, and if you don’t get it right, you don’t have a novel at all. Come to this session to learn how to do it well.
This talk is part of the Windsor International Writers Conference, which runs Friday, July 6, through Sunday, July 8.

Writing Query Letters that Get a Yes
Saturday, July 7, 2018
2:00 – 3:15 p.m.
Ambassador Bridge Holiday Inn, 1855 Huron Church Road, Windsor, Ontario  (Map here.)
If you want to get the attention of an agent or a publisher, you need to craft a good query letter. Using real life examples, this seminar shows you how to do it. There isn’t just one way to write a successful query, and your query doesn’t have to be perfect; it just needs to persuade an agent that you’ve got a book that they can successfully pitch to a publisher.
This seminar is part of the Windsor International Writers Conference, which runs Friday, July 6, through Sunday, July 8. 
See the conference schedule here and registration here.

And as a bonus, book a short one-on-one consult with Brian to make your query perfect. Just ask when you book your spot at the conference.
