Write with Confidence
We’ll talk about Point of View, your “voice”

About this event

How This Workshop Will Help You

Confidence comes when you know what you’re doing when you understand the rules and know when and how to break them. Whether you write fiction, non-fiction, memoir, or anything else, the skills you need weren’t taught in school. We’ll talk about Point of View, your “voice” as a writer, your “voices” as characters, writing effective dialog, and how to tell a great story. We’ll do lots of writing, and you’ll be surprised at your own abilities. No experience is required—just bring your enthusiasm and pen/paper/computer. We’ll all write at our own levels.

What We’ll Do in the Workshop• Work your writing muscles with short writing prompts

• Practice writing in different points of view

• Practice writing effective dialog

• Consider when to “show” and when to “tell”

• Differentiate between your writer’s voice and the voices of your characters

• See the balance between plot and character

Who Should Attend• Anyone with a story to tell, whether fact or fiction

• New writers who want to save years of frustration

• Experienced writers looking for new ways of looking at their work

About Myra

Myra Levine is on a mission: to make sure that nobody dies with their story still inside them. She shows people how to turn their memories into interesting stories—even novels—with techniques not taught in school. And her classes are FUN. To Myra, writing isn’t about grammar or spelling or knowing where to put the commas; it’s about capturing a moment in a way that brings it to life. As a writing coach, she challenges her clients to dig deeper into their lives to find the germ of an idea that will become a great story, or a dozen great stories, or a terrific novel. Her favorite students fall into two categories: people who are sure they can’t write, and people who are sure they can!

Before turning to fiction, Myra spent decades writing television and radio scripts, instructional videos, and corporate marketing programs. She won many local and regional advertising awards before leaving corporate life to become a wife and mother of two adopted kids. Stay-at-home-motherhood rekindled her ambition to write fiction.

As Myra puts it, “If you turn the truth into fiction, you’re less likely to get sued.”

Myra’s new novel, The Dead Mothers’ Club, was just released in May 2020. This book and her first, Revenge of the Soccer Moms, are available on Amazon.com in print and e-book.

Please note:

The Valley of Writers team scours the web looking for the most inspiring, elevating, and accessible events that we can share as a service to our readers.
The big idea is that in a virtual arena, more people can participate. Geographical boundaries matter less.
The events we list are virtual and can be attended by writers from wherever they are in the world.
Unless otherwise stated, we are not affiliated with and do not benefit financially from the events we post. Listing is not an endorsement of the content, opinions, or products promoted by the event organizers we feature here.
Please verify all dates, times and other event details as these are subject to change and are beyond our control.

What qualifies an event as ‘lit’? Any event that we think would teach writers of fiction, memoir, and poetry useful skills, inspire them to produce great work, remind them of the power of this work we do and build stronger, mutually beneficial ties between writers and other creatives.
