OK, fellow writers, I need some input:
Next Saturday, I'll be presenting a workshop at the Fiction Fest 2009 conference on "Tightening and Trimming Your Prose."
My question is, if you were planning on attending, what kinds of things would you like to see covered/included in that workshop? I have an hour, and I do already have a brief outline/idea of what I'm going to discuss. But I'd love some suggestions as well. What would you expect from a breakout session with that title? If you've gone to conferences in the past, which workshops did you most enjoy, and why? Handouts, or not? Self-promo, or not?
I'm looking forward to the experience, despite the nerves...I figure it'll be good for me :)
