Savvy Authors Summer Symposium

I am a big believer in writer/author groups, and one of my favorite groups that I belong to is Savvy Authors. I've taken countless workshops and chats over the years, and I've also met my great and very supportive circle of writer friends. And every summer I get pumped for the Summer Symposium.

The 2012 Summer Symposium is a week jam-packed with workshops, chats and Q/A sessions and it's a week that I spend practically glued to my computer. It's a week of learning - and fun! This year is no exception, as it promises to another great week. The Symposium runs August 20-26th.

This year Savvy Author members and friends are in for a treat as 2012 RITA Winner, NY Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Darynda Jones about "Seducing the Reader into Turning the Page" in a chat that writers don't want to miss. Also learn from Leanna Renee Hieber as she teaches "How to Write Adult While Writing YA".

The online format features presenters sharing their craft, genre and writing secrets during workshops, chats or Q/A sessions. There will also be talk about publishing and promoting, offering editor and agent pitch opportunities to registrants with completed manuscripts. They are also raffling off tons of prizes from books on craft to novels, gift certificates, workshops, three-chapter critiques from editors and published authors and more. Also one lucky participant will win a Kindle Fire.
