From the Little Book of Writers' Wisdom: 

"Truth is so hard to tell, it sometimes needs fiction to make it plausible." 

-- Sir Francis Bacon
Fawcett House at Breezy Point, Nisswa, MN.

Seventeen writers in one house for a weekend where discussions and workshops covered a wide terrain: using RIPL, character transformation, marketing and promoting, and the next NLW anthology “Kiss or Kill Under the Northern Lights.” All was not work with a Halloween costume party at the Dockside Lounge.
Presentation and Discussion: What is point of view? That’s a good question! USA Today bestselling author Denise Devine will discuss this simple, practical element of storytelling and show you how you can use it to make your stories the best they can be.
