In this program, Pamela discusses how to rise from wannabe to full diva-luscious-ness. She will provide various tips and techniques for making your manuscript really shine. As an added bonus, during the last part of the workshop, Pamela will take the first page of an actual manuscript and lead a group hands-on critique based on the criteria established in the first part of the presentation.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Pamela Kopfler was born a Texan and tumbled through twelve schools all over the USA before she finished high school, but she’s a Southerner – through and through. Now, she calls South Louisiana her home and writing her passion. Her evolution to the writing life took the scenic route, just like her early romp through the country. She’s a certified teacher but traded in that profession for writing, hosting, and reporting for local TV and telling stories on local Public Radio. Then the unthinkable happened. Her prince finally arrived with a catch. Love always has a catch. She had to relocate and leave her career behind. The writing and the romance survived the move. Now, she’s determined to conquer the novel. In addition to her Golden Heart final, she’s won or placed in twenty-eight contests, including the overall Daphne du Maurier, Sandy Star, Emily, and Dixie Kane. Pamela is active in her local RWA chapter (SOLA) and loves to meet and help other writers.
