Show & Tell Ends in Third Grade with Victoria Landis
Saturday, October 21, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Fourth Floor, Conference Room 4009
Attention all writers! Enjoy a workshop from Mystery Writers of America board member, Victoria Landis! It's a common expression, show and tell, but what does it mean and why does it matter? It's the little things that, over the course of an entire book, will 'tire' the reader, instead of keeping them engaged. Knowing how and when to show, not tell, keeps the pace flowing and helps make your book a page-turner!
Register online to save your spot.
This event is part of the Writing Workshops series.
