KYSL SD23: Lynn Vannucci

January 30, 2009

Know Your Session Leaders ….

Lynn Vannucci will conduct a workshop called “Narrative Triage: The Practice of Applying Emotional Logic“. You don’t want to miss this one.

I’m so tempted to leave it at that, just to see what happens. But now isn’t the time to experiment for the benefit of my amusement. Her first novel, Coyote, arrived in 1987 via Bantnam, and the time since has seen her writing a weekly newspaper column, articles for various publications, and romantic fiction. She has lectured at Lock Haven University and the Pennsylvania State University College of Technology. At one point she managed to adapt Barbara Woodhouse’s No Bad Dogs for video production, and picked up credit as a biographer as a co-writer of Dell Williams’ autobiography, Revolution in the Garden. Ms. Vannucci is a principle partner of Albbara Editorial Services, and is presently working with Dr. Alice Ladas on a book about female human sexuality.

Now, then, like I said: You don’t want to miss this one.



Hedge your bets and Beat the Book!

September 16, 2008

Wes and I have long sought to provide a conference rotation schedule that would enable writers to attend one SCWC with only an idea or raw draft, then, over the course of a year, by tapping into subsequent SCWC events — utilizing the workshop leaders, read & critique troubleshooting, etc. — yield a firmly polished manuscript in 12 months. Whether starting with the San Diego, L.A. or Palm Springs conferences, the routinely available touchstone to the community would be in place to expedite completion of a commercially viable book.

Managing three quality conferences a year in effort to achieve that aim, however, is tough. Takes a lot of time to put on a good conference, let alone three. But I think we’ve come up with a solution that we’ll be debuting in a couple weeks in Irvine. It’s called Beat the Book, a private year-long “workshop” brought to us by one of our favorite workshop leaders, Marla Miller, and her colleague and friend of the conference, Lynn Vannucci.

Get the Beat the Book skinny here and let us know what you think.
