W. H. Horner, a faculty mentor with Seton Hill University’s Writing Popular Fiction MFA program, will work through fundamental aspects of writing fiction. Handouts and worksheets will be provided. Attendees should bring a three-ring notebook and paper. We all make mistakes, but editors, agents, and publishers want manuscripts that are as close to perfect as possible and with authors who communicate clearly and professionally. W. H. Horner has amassed a collection of mistakes and literary blunders from both beginning and established writers. The workshop deals with topics such as grammar, formatting, and style in manuscripts. Query and cover letters will also be covered, with a focus on professional presentation and tone. After the session, attendees should be able to spot pitfalls in their own work before submitting it for publication or direct sale.
