Beginning and seasoned writers will learn how to craft a novel or memoir from award-winning author, Maggie Bishop, at the Foothills Writers Guild’s annual writers conference February 11-12, 2011, in Anderson, South Carolina.
Bishop presents a variety of workshops as part of her Write Now! With Maggie program. She will offer workshops on novel and memoir writing and another on conducting a successful book signing.
Bishop is a popular presenter who regularly receives rave reviews for her workshops. ” By the time I left Maggie Bishop’s workshop on the development of characters in fiction and non-fiction writing, I felt I’d condensed two semesters of graduate-level writing courses into one day. She knows her stuff and knows how to impart it to participants.” Lissa Brown

“Don’t begin your novel until you’ve spent a day with Maggie Bishop at one of her workshops on character development. She’ll save you months of frustration with her sure-fire method of analyzing the people who will drive your story.” Leslie Brunetsky, author of Real Country: From the Fast Track to Appalachia
