Saturday, August 10th, 1:00pm, Facing Feedback Head On: Sherry Wilson McEwan, Shirlee Smith Matheson, Faye Reineberg Holt (in 3 Willow Park Room)
Whether you are working with beta readers, family, friends, manuscript evaluators, freelance or trade editors, what advice do you need to heed and when might you override the suggestion? You have finished your manuscript or you’re almost there, but you know you need to address any concerns. It can be very difficult to respond to feedback when you are not sure whether your reader(s) is adequately informed or responsive to your manuscript intent and audience. What do you do?

Sunday, August 11th, 3:00pm, Shifting Gears, Shifting Genres: Shirlee Smith Matheson, Talena Winters, Sandra Fitzpatrick, Faye Reineberg Holt (in 2 Bonavista Room) What are the pros and cons of writing in more than one genre? Writing for various audiences might keep your creativity flowing, but what are the advantages and disadvantages for your writing career? You might have loved reading and writing in a particular genre such as fiction, but you are ready to experiment with new ideas. What kind of reactions might you get from your previous readers, publishers, librarians and book sellers?
