Step outside the norm of writing-how-to’s (plot, POV, tell vs show, 3rd person vs 1st, setting, foreshadowing, etc.) and take a look at three critical elements of storytelling that go beyond the norm. Award-winning author Sylvia Dickey Smith will show you how these elements invite the reader in, giving notice that the real world is about to be suspended and the world of story entered, elements that pull readers in and make them ask for more. Dickey Smith will select and read a few well-chosen excerpts from best-sellers that demonstrate these critical elements and their effects on the reader. Friday, August 24, 2012, 2:10-3:10 PM.
