Bay to Ocean Writers Conference, February 26, 2011 (Near Easton MD)

For the Bay to Ocean Writers Conference this February 26 I'll be offering a miniworkshop, "Top 10 Techniques of Creative Nonfiction and Fiction" from 1: 15 - 2:15 pm
Whether literary, mystery, spy, detective, romance, science or historical, fiction relies on specific techniques to invite the reader to form and maintain a "vivid dream" in his or her mind. The same is true for creative nonfiction, that is, literary travel writing, personal memoir and literary journalism. With examples of many different kinds of highly effective writing, award-winning travelwriter and novelist C.M. Mayo covers the ten most powerful of these techniques.

On Sunday February 27-- the following day-- I'll be offering a longer, three hour workshop, also on "Techniques of Fiction," at the Writer's Center in Bethesda MD. To read more and register on-line for this workshop, click here.
