Event description

Description

Emmy award-winning journalist and author John DeDakis will conduct a day-long writing workshop, "From Novice to Novelist," at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul in Burlington, Vermont.

This workshop is a step-by-step guide that deconstructs and demystifies the novel-writing process. You'll learn how to stay organized, how to write in the voice of the opposite sex, how to rewrite, how to get an agent, and how to face your writing/marketing fears. By the end of the workshop, you will be equipped with the skills to start and perfect your story. The session on rewriting will include time for a writing lab.

It's a great opportunity to connect with other writers and learn from an accomplished novelist and writing coach. Whether you're a beginning writer or an online storyteller, this workshop will help you get to where you need to be. Writers of all skill levels are encouraged to attend.

About the instructor: John DeDakis is a former Senior Copy Editor on CNN's "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer" and the author of four mystery-suspense novels featuring a strong female protagonist. His fourth in the series, "Bullet in the Chamber," is the winner of the Feathered Quill and Reviewers Choice awards for 2017. The novel deals, in part, with the accidental death of John's 22-year-old son Stephen in 2011.

During John’s nearly 45-year, award-winning career in journalism (25 years at CNN), he has been a White House Correspondent and interviewed such luminaries as Alfred Hitchcock, Jimmy Carter, and Ronald Reagan. In addition, John edits book-length manuscripts and has taught journalism at The University of Maryland-College Park and American University in Washington D.C. He also leads writing workshops throughout the U.S. and abroad.
