Day 3 of the 2018 Writers in Paradise conference at Eckerd College in beautiful St Petersburg, Florida.
#WritersInParadise #EckerdCollege #WritingConference
The faculty and guests met in their respective classrooms for the second in the series of focused workshops intended to improve the skills of all participants.
Meet The Faculty: Eight faculty members each sat at a different table for an eight minute Q&A.
At the end of the time, a bell rang and the faculty switched to the tables for more Q&A with a different group.
After a break, Writer Idol was held, where three ‘judges’ played ‘editors advocate’.
A volunteer read the first page of each novel submitted.
If the ‘editors’ had a substantial issue with the page being read, a hand was raised.
If two out of three had raised hands, the page was rejected and explanations for the rejections provided.
Wine & Cheese reception was offered followed by Evening Readings from Tim Dorsey & Laura Lippman.
