This full-day workshop includes two masterclass sessions designed to help you tackle the issues and challenges specific to your creative process. 9am – 12pm MOVING CHARACTERS: action figures - In this deep-dive morning session, we’ll take your fictional folks to the next level with a simple, powerful technique that will strengthen your people, your plots, your hooks, and your voice whether you’re a plotter or pantser, a beginner or an expert. 1:30pm – 4:30pm CASTING CALL: Starring Roles – Expanding on the techniques presented earlier, this session gets down to the nitty gritty of crafting your own fascinating cast without unnecessary trivia, digression, or theory.

He has lived all over and along the way, he’s earned his crust as a model, a messenger, a promoter, a programmer, a sculptor, a singer, a stripper, a bookkeeper, a bartender, a techie, a teacher, a director... but writing has ever been his bread and butter. He has been happily partnered for over a decade with the most loving, handsome, shrewd, hilarious, noble man to walk this planet. Damon is a proud member of the Romance Writers of America and the Rainbow Romance Writers. Though new to romance fiction, Damon has been writing for print, stage, and screen for two decades, which is both more and less glamorous than you might imagine. He's won some awards, but counts his blessings more often: his amazing friends, his demented family, his beautiful husband, his loyal fans, and his silly, stern, seductive Muse who keeps whispering in his ear, year after year. Damon would love to hear from you.... Get in touch with him at DamonSuede.com. Questions? Contact RoseAnn DeFranco, firstname.lastname@example.org Secretary, NJRW, 2018 Special Event Coordinator
