Want to know about Fiction Fluency? Have burning craft questions about writing? Curious about the writer’s life? Now’s your chance to ask an author, Eric Witchey, anything! (about writing and craft and the business of writing, that is. And maybe about antique model trains, fly-fishing, and nano-aquariums if you want easy ways to get him off track).

Fiction Fluency is a year-long, month-by-month progressive developmental program in creative writing. Based on his background in theoretical linguistics, his experience selling fiction in 12 genres, his training as a teacher, and his gleaned knowledge from creativity science and cognitive science, Eric Witchey has put together a progressive developmental process focused on practical tools writers can use to enhance, develop, and improve their productivity and results. The program trains both the cognitive and intuitive minds to work together so that cognitive writers will never lack for intuitive insight and intuitive writers will never find themselves waiting for the muse.

This seminar will develop based on the questions asked. It might include some theory, some demonstration, and even some hands-on experimentation. Participants will leave with answers to questions they bring up during the event. Eric will do his best to make those answers relevant and useful in the context of the individual’s creative practice.
