Switch It Up! with Tina Connolly, Alex C. Renwick, and Kate Ristau

Fall in love again… with your manuscript.
Got a piece of writing you’ve been looking at so long you’re not sure what you’re doing anymore? Find yourself stuck at a literary impasse? Maybe you’re just feeling burnt out in general and wondering where the good times went. Bring your literary darlings for a play date with Tina, Alex, and Kate and have a little fun with form and function. Refocus on what you really love about your storyline, characters, or plot by building castles with us for a day in a whole different sandbox than the one you’ve been working in. Turn your elevator pitch into a haiku, your short story into song lyrics, your novel into a comic strip. Rewrite your hardcore urban fantasy novel synopsis as a gritty western, or pretend your space opera is a furry love story. We’ll free up those creative juices and find you a new way of looking at, thinking about, or honing your writing!
