Craft on Draft: Turning Research Into Compelling Stories (Virtual Event)
Ever wondered how to turn research into compelling stories? Novelists are often advised to write what you know, but what happens when you want to write what you don't know? Join Craft on Draft's next virtual event on Thursday, October 29th at 7:00pm to hear how authors Jeffrey Colvin (Africaville), Daphne Kalotay (Blue Hours), and Rishi Reddi (Passage West) used research to craft authentic fiction that engages contemporary readers.
Created and managed by alumni of GrubStreet's Novel Incubator program and hosted virtually by Belmon Books, Craft on Draft is a reading series devoted to great fiction — and the mechanics behind it. Three authors read and discuss their work, plus that of one lucky audience member. So grab a drink, a page of your own writing, and come craft your own draft (virtually).
GrubWrites is a space for the writing and reading community to share ideas and seek advice, a place where writers at the very beginning of their careers publish alongside established authors. Book lovers, we bring you reviews, recommendations, and conversations with exciting new authors to keep you up to speed on all things lit. Writers, this is your one stop shop for expert craft talk, opinions on how we learn and teach writing, and essential advice about the publishing industry.
Plus, we want to hear from you! Our ongoing call for submissions is open to literary community members of all types and persuasions. We want to hear from students, teachers, authors, readers, editors, agents, publicists, and any devotee of the written word. If you have something to say about writing, reading, the publishing industry, or anything related to the literary world, this is the place to voice it. We’re particularly committed to advocating for a diverse range of voices in the literary marketplace and raising the visibility of writers from under-represented communities.See other articles by Info
