  • Creative writing for Young Writers with best selling author, Ann Eisenstein;

For writers and curious readers, best-selling author, Tamara Ward will be discussing how to use experience-based research in writing a novel.  She’ll be discussing her experiences at the Writer’s Police academies, where she learned first-hand that hands-on research is a great way to enhance fiction writing. Life Protection Skills will be presenting a some of their martial arts approaches to everyday situations; writer and producer, Brian Barnette, will lead a discussion on producing the documentary, What Michael Sees.
