PRESENTER, VENUE, AND TIME PROGRAM INFORMATION
CHRONICLING OUR NATURAL WORLD ON THE PAGE
Harbor Springs History Museum
9:30 a.m.

Some of us explore the world outside our own front doors, while others travel far and wide to observe the majesty of the global natural world. Writers are able to capture and lay down the essence of that which surrounds us—and which we too often take for granted—by exploring through travelogue, memoir, poetry and activism, just how connected we are to other people on this planet, as well as the planet as a whole.

Presenters: Donovan Hohn, Josh MacIvor Andersen, and Cindy Hunter Morgan

 
YOUNG WOMEN ON THE BRINK
Harbor Springs Area Public Library
9:30 a.m.

There is a passion, a rage, and a vulnerability that often accompanies young women on the brink of adulthood. These explosive emotions can often dictate how they view their friendships, sexuality, surroundings and life choices. Yet, what they all have in common is a strength and a desire to be made whole.

Presenters: Julie Buntin, Cara Hoffman, and Mindy McGinnis

 
WHEN RESEARCH & STORYTELLING COLLIDE
Harbor Springs History Museum
11:00 a.m.

Rewriting history, delving into the life of an historical figure, or creating believable worlds outside of our own, requires that writers learn how to build that bridge between fact-finding and fiction writing, so that readers are swept up in the story without questioning the veracity of the details.

Presenters: Julie Berry, Meg Howrey, and Augustus Rose

 
LETTING THE CHARACTER TAKE THE LEAD
Harbor Springs Area Public Library
11:00 a.m.

Character driven storytelling allows the writer to develop a strong and undeniable voice for his main character or characters, so much so that this is the element with which readers connect, empathize and associate the novel. Books in which characters are memorable, excel at crafting personalities and thoughts that hold a mirror up to the reader, at times unsettlingly revealing or comfortably familiar.

Presenters: Jack Cheng, Gabe Habash, Brendan Kiely, and Adam Silvera
