Writing What You Know: Using Autobiography in Fiction
 
The old adage is to write what you know. Which is great — but as fiction writers, it’s sometimes safer to fictionalize what you know. In this craft class, we’ll talk about how to take real life experience and fictionalize it. Looking at published texts and with in-class writing (come prepared to write), we’ll discover how to write about what you know — and how to use the truth to go into imaginary places. — Nina

Sounds like it will be a beneficial workshop, with writing included! This craft class is on Friday at 1:45. Hands-on is the best. Nina is also going to be offering an amazing silent auction item. Time to sign up for the conference.

And Nina’s talk at 1 p.m. on Thursday will open the conference:
