Keynote Panel: What Makes Writing Good, What Makes Writing Great
You’ve taken writing classes, met with an agent or editor, and received feedback on your work – but what does it all mean? To many, the concept of great writing is subjective, and certainly, much of it depends on the taste of the reader. So how can we tell when writing is good, or even great, for that matter? How does a writer transcend mere competency and go from good to great? This group of editors and critics, who are also writers themselves, will help you make sense of it all. What makes them select a piece for publication, or give a glowing review? They’ll draw on their extensive experience in the field to wrap up the weekend with the big takeaways–the ones that will send us back to our desks ready to make great work. Featuring editors and authors Chris Fink, Gina Frangello, Brandon Taylor, and Jill Petty. Moderated by Toni Nealie.
