June 3rd, three successful YA/MG authors will share their secrets and characterization techniques in this in-depth writer’s intensive. 

During the four hours, attendees will listen to presentation and then break up into groups to work on and participate in writing exercises designed to help develop rich characters.  

Learn how using Enneagram and Scrivener technology can help enhance and perfect the nuances that can help drive a story.


Ellen Jensen Abbott is the author of  a YA fantasy, Watersmeet (Marshall Cavendish, 2009). The sequel to Watersmeet is due in Fall 2011.



Alissa Grosso’s first YA novel, Popular, will be published in May 2011 by Flux.




Keri Mikulski, young adult author of Head Games (Razorbill/Penguin, January 2011), Stealing Bases (Razorbill/Penguin, May 2011), Pretty Tough Books 5 and 6, Screwball (Blitz, 2008), and its sequel Change Up (Blitz, 2009)







This is your chance to work on your characters – one of the things that editors say is so important today.  Hope you can join us at one of the Intensive Workshop at the beginning of our first full Weekend Conference.

Talk tomorrow,

    Happy New Year!


  2. Sounds like the entire conference is going to be INTENSE!
