Now Write! Free Panel: Capturing Your Dreams – How to Craft a Bestselling Fantasy Novel

Contributors to Now Write! Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror will discuss craft in a way that goes beyond the usual writers’ panel. 

Our panelists will speak candidly about their own writing and share their favorite tools.  Be inspired by Kim Dower’s encouragement to capture material from you dreams, learn Michelle Newman’s secrets on how to effectively ground fantasy in reality and have fun with Derek Taylor Kent’s approach to character development.
