Letting Pictures Drive the Words: writing travel stories that entice your readers to return

Whether it’s a travel blog, journal or the next great novel, your writing will capture the interest of the reader when the visuals drive the story. 

Join award-winning author and street photographer, Ingrid Lundquist, to learn her method of ‘photo-driven’ storytelling. 

Learn how to build a ‘photo-driven’ story, edit your photos to tell the right story, and then identify information to leave out and information to include to enrich your writing and bring your audience back time-and-again. 

NOTE: This four-hour workshop is taking place on Sat, Oct 5 at the Nevada County Campus of Sierra College in Grass Valley. Open to all levels of interest and experience.

Miffed by the Book Parts

The very important, but often-ignored-until-the-last-minute, grey area of the book is referred to simply as “the book parts.” These are the free-standing written pieces (introduction, foreword, preface, dedication, index, table of contents, etc.) are combined with your manuscript, graphic design and formatting before your story ever makes it to book-in-hand.

There’s a reason the elements exist and a way to write them to add value to your work. You'll learn important tips on how to write the book parts to your marketing advantage and insider-secrets on hooking different audiences.
