Want to improve your creative writing skills? Then plan on coming to our writer’s workshop with author Ken Pelham on Saturday, September 28 at 10:30am. Popular author Ken Pelham will speak on “Out of Sight, Out of Mind: Writing in the Fictional Point of View.” You’ve got description and dialogue down pat, so why do the rejection slips keep coming? In this entertaining how-to (and how-not to) on the fine points of writing consistently from a character’s point-of-view, you’ll learn how to avoid the traps and trips of viewpoint. Writers of narrative nonfiction will learn how the same techniques apply to their work.
Ken Pelham grew up in the off-the-radar South Florida farm town of Immokalee, sandwiched between coasts and snug up against wild, wooly Big Cypress Swamp. His novels, Brigands Key and Place of Fear, both first-place winners of the Royal Palm Literary Award, sweep the reader into mayhem and suspense. Ken is also the author of numerous short stories and articles. A member of International Thriller Writers, Florida Writers Association, and Maitland Writers Group, he lives in Maitland, Florida with his wife, Laura. Please visit him at www.kenpelham.com.
