Killer heels–Oh, how we miss the days of Dallas, Dynasty, Knot’s Landing, and Falcon Crest! And be sure to check out SCWC*TV to hear what Darlene has to say about writing page-turning suspense.

More staff has been added to the schedule since last update, including author Orna Ross (Lover’s Hallow, A Dance in Time), who’ll joining us for the first time all the way from London. Having worked for 25 years in journalism and publishing, Orna will conduct a session called “Creative Intelligence for the Creative Age,” in which she’ll discuss how now is a time of unprecedented opportunity for writers to reach readers by contrasting the writing world pre- and post- digital. And in particular, what creative qualities writers need to develop in themselves so they are well equipped to meet the challenges of our time. Sounds like a session no entrepreneurial author will want to miss.
Don’t forget about the previous update at the bottom of the page if you missed it as the “Life Story” writing contest is in full swing. Special Guest Speakers and more still to be announced, so check back soon.
