Writing Stories With Heart, with Award-Winning Author Rosie. J. Pova



Tuesday, December 7 at 7:30 p.m. EST / 6:30 CST

Do you want to infuse your stories with more heart? How can you make your writing sweet and heartfelt, but avoid the saccharine zone? What makes a story heartfelt anyway? 

This 1-hour webinar will explore the elements that give stories that edge, the power to tug at the reader’s heartstrings, and stay with you long after you’ve closed the book. The workshop will also offer tips and practical advice on how to write stories with heart as we use mentor texts and pinpoint the right ingredients of a heartfelt story. A handout with mentor texts will be included.

To join this free meeting click the link on the Members Only page on the Southern Breeze website (sign in to access). A recording of this presentation will be available online afterward, with access for one month–link on the Members Only page.


Southern Breeze runs on volunteers, and we’re happy to award the Second Annual Hat’s Off Award to one of our volunteers, to be announced at the December meeting.

In addition, ten of our published members have contributed Helping Hand Door Prizes, including things like free critiques, advice on research, chats about the business of kid lit, and more. These will be drawn after the presentation, and you must be present to win.
