Writer's Digest Novel Writing Conference
The fantasy genre imagines other worlds as settings for the story, worlds where myths and legends are real, magic rules, and wondrous creatures leap off the page. With the monumental success on the page and screen of properties like Game of Thrones and Harry Potter, interest in the genre is at an all-time high. But where do you begin when the only limits imposed are those of your imagination? How do you approach building an entirely new world and not let all the possibilities and minutiae overwhelm you and prevent you from telling a compelling tale? Attendees will learn tips of the trade from award-winning fantasy author L. Penelope.

Writer's Digest Annual Conference
We become authors because we love to write, but there seem to be an endless number of tasks to manage on top of actually getting a manuscript completed. How can we manage the writing along with the admin work, promotion, and everything else? If you’re feeling overwhelmed, distracted, and not as productive as you’d like, then you are not alone, but there are systems, tools, and strategies you can use to help put your writing life in order and reclaim some mental freedom.
Attendees will learn organizational and productivity tips to help de-stress, achieve their goals, and get those words on the page.

Tools of the Trade: Building a Fantasy World
Why do so many fantasy novels take place in the same, medieval, pseudo-European setting? How can writers create unique, fully-realized environments that readers will want to get lost in? Dive into techniques for architecting your own world and learn how elements such as geography, technology, economics, weather, government, culture and more are all integral to crafting a tale designed to delight. Expect to leave the seminar with the building blocks of your own fantasy world as well as a plan for fleshing out your creation while not getting lost in the details.
