Hanging out with young authors


Spent a lovely afternoon with young writers (and an entire row of family member cheerleaders) this weekend. The Author at Once workshops have always been about telling a writer how easy it now is to be published — so start writing, there’s no excuse to delay. We hope that they went home remembering that, at least.

I mentored roughly half the group on writing romance/YA, and helped some nonfiction writers on the benefits of using a fiction/narrative structure in their work. I listened to story pitches, read some of their work aloud, and also read some of mine.

An afternoon is never enough, of course, but it looks like we might be offering more of the creative writing activities in the future. With the help of iAcademy, which hosted this event (we were in the same room where they shot season 3 of Project Runway Philippines), we might have more in store for writers soon!

Email books@bronzeage.ph if you want in on future workshops and classes. 🙂 For now, will rest a bit!
