Brian Henry Workshop – How to Write a Bestseller
Brian Henry and New York Times #1 bestselling author Kelley Armstrong offer a workshop on How to Write a Bestseller, Saturday, February 18, 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM, at Harcourt United Church.
This workshop will give you the inside scoop on what gives a novel best-selling potential. You’ll learn how to get readers emotionally involved in your story, how to raise tension, control your pacing and keep your readers turning the pages. But you won’t just hear about some of the best secrets of the trade; you’ll learn how to apply them to give your own writing a sharp new edge.
Workshop leader Brian Henry has been a book editor and creative writing teacher for more than 25 years. He publishes Quick Brown Fox, Canada’s most popular blog for writers, teaches creative writing at Ryerson University and has led workshops everywhere from Boston to Buffalo and from Sarnia, Ontario, to Saint John, New Brunswick. He has helped many of his students get published, including guest speaker Kelley Armstrong.
Kelley Armstrong lives in Aylmer, south of London, Ontario, with her husband and three children. She used to program computers and attend Brian Henry workshops. Now she writes international bestsellers. Kelley has hit the New York Time’s bestseller list with both her supernatural thrillers for adults and her urban fantasy for teens. To date, she’s published more than 28 books, most recently Betrayals, a gothic novel for adults; Forest of Ruins, a fantasy novel for teens; and coming in February, just before the workshop, A Darkness Absolute, a thriller for adults. Bitten, A TV series based on Kelley’s first 13 novels, has been broadcasting since January 2014.
The cost is $49 or $53 at the door, HST included.
