Additionally, several Heritage Writers Guild members will deliver presentations, including “Your Brain is a Playground: Creative Thinking” by Barbara Funke, “Shadowing: Developing Living Characters” by Traci McDonald and “Making Stories Come to Life” by Jon Thompson. Lunch will be included. A complete schedule for the day can be found here.
