Susan Dennard

Saturday, November 9 only!

Susan Dennard has come a long way from small-town Georgia. Working in marine biology, she got to travel the world—six out of seven continents, to be exact (she’ll get to you yet, Asia!)—before she settled down as a full-time novelist and writing instructor.

She is the author of the Something Strange and Deadly series, as well as the New York Times bestselling Witchlands series, and she also hosts the popular newsletter for writers, the Misfits & Daydreamers. When not writing, she is slaying Darkspawn (on her PS4) or earning bruises at the dojo.

She lives in the Midwestern US with her French husband, two spoiled dogs, and two grouchy cats. Learn more about her on her twitterinstagram, or newsletter.

How to Write a Book and Get Traditionally Published

This workshop begins with a powerpoint presentation that goes through Susan’s journey to publication as well as the sources of her writing inspiration (music, movies, video games, books, etc.). She then delves into an the basics of writing and a step-by-step how-to for traditional publication. This presentation is very organic and feeds on the attendees — their experience levels as well personal goals — and Susan also opens it up for audience questions at the end.
