Workshop (11 a.m.): "How to Write a Novel and Get it Published"
Former CNN senior copy editor John DeDakis offers a practical 15-point plan that demystifies and deconstructs novel-writing — from the germ of an idea all the way through the creative process, with an eye on getting a finished book into the hands of potential fans. Find out how to tap into your life experiences to transform them into a book-length project. You’ll also discover strategies for finding an agent, marketing the finished product and facing your fears.

Awards Ceremony (12:30 p.m.)
Author Shawn Reilly Simmons will talk about how cooking on movie sets provided the inspiration for her Red Carpet Catering Mystery series and recognize the participants and winners of the 7th annual Write On! Short Story Contest.
