September 19, 2020 – Featured Speaker at the Atlanta Writers Club
I’ll be one of the speakers at the Saturday afternoon monthly meeting of the Atlanta Writers Club in September.
“Rejection: the secret door to strong revision” – If distance is the key to revision, then rejection might just be the secret door that key fits into. This discussion will focus on turning negatives into positives – using rejection as not just fuel but an actual tool for revision. Chris will share the submission history of his debut novel, Dan Unmasked, and how it fed into the revision process to produce a book that could not have existed without all those rejections, as well as the techniques that emerged from the experience.
