Conflux Writers Day April 2014 |
Just a brief post to let everyone know I'll be doing two presentations at the Conflux Writers Day on Saturday April 5, which is a prelude to the Aurealis Awards that night. The inaugural Conflux Writers Day will take place at University House, Australian National University, Canberra. The theme is 'The Writers Journey', which will be covered by four sub-themes – Writing Skills, Writing Processes, Submission and Publication and Building a Career. My first presentation, Presenting Your Blog Posts for Maximum Impact will focus on: text layout readability images and other features how to keep people on your site for longer accessibility issues and what to avoid. My second presentation, The Elements of Novels, will feature information about: balancing the beginning, middle and end purpose of theme how to distil a novel into a single, sharp, meaningful sentence the three essential characters every novel needs (and how they work together). In all, there will be a total of twenty sessions,
