On Saturday, August 25th, I’ll be leaving the confines of my horribly disorganized cubicle to get a breath of fresh air. Oh, yes, and to participate in the Third Annual Writers in the Park.

The mini-conference is put on by the St. Louis Writers Guild and is held outside at Kirkwood Park – 111 S. Geyer Rd, in Kirkwood, Missouri. The event is free to the public and runs from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm.

W. E. “Bill” Mueller and I will be hosting a one hour seminar entitled Crime & Mystery, Writing the Novel or Short Story. I will be giving tips on writing a mystery novel, followed by Bill who will talk about writing crime/mystery short stories.

Additional seminars include: How to find an agent and publisher, Calling all young authors – learn to write a book, Speculative Fiction: From the Final Frontier to Middle Earth, Everything You Need to Know You Learned in Elementary School: Improve With the Basics, Poetry. Writing the Fight Scene, Kids Writing Workshop, 10 Things I’ve Learned After 20 Years as a Published Author, Haiku, and Young Writers Awards Workshop and Poetry Workshop for Kids.

Authors will have their books for sale, including other authors who are not presenting at the event.  Should a fun day!  If you are in the St. Louis area I hope you’ll stop by and check it out!

  1. I wish I had asked my husband for a ticket to ST. Louis for my birthday on the 25th to hear my favorite author speak.
