Showing Emotions

PRESENTER: Laurie Schnebly Campbell

Everyone knows how important it is to show rather than tell. But when it comes to showing emotion, that can be...well, tricky. How do you keep from going over the top and making readers roll their eyes? How do you avoid not going far enough and sending their attention downhill with every word? Learn the tricks of conveying emotion for readers of whatever genre you’re writing and how to find the right balance between plummeting, purple prose and perfection.

Come spend a beautiful Saturday morning with us. We are looking forward to seeing YOU!

Laurie Schnebly Campbell

Laurie Schnebly Campbell published half a dozen romances with Harlequin, one of which beat out Nora Roberts for “Best Special Edition of the Year,” before discovering she liked teaching even more than writing. Since then, she’s acquired 51 books with dedications from authors who’ve loved her classes and she can’t wait to see what #52 will be.
