Florida Writers Foundation Celebrity Workshop
Robert N. Macomber presents:
“LITERARY ARTS & THE WRITING CRAFT”

We are the storytellers! As the chroniclers of the human condition and whatever needs to be told, our challenge goes beyond mere recitation of names, dates, and numbers. It includes the role you play, your responsibility. Find the style, flavor, humor, and emotion of a story. Find your own strength in the literary arts. This collaboration of effort will inspire a better understanding of these aspects, with practical tips on how to blend vivid depiction with factual accuracy.
 
WHEN: Thursday, October 15, 2020
