Hiding the Plumbing: Strategies for Invisible Exposition

Susan DeFreitas, Indigo Editing & Publications
10 a.m.–11:30 a.m., $45
 Saturday, July 21st, 2012

One of the most maddening issues faced by fiction writers is how to convey that all-important information in the past of the story (the backstory, or exposition) without breaking the flow of action in the present. In this sense, the exposition is like the plumbing: we all want it to work, but we don’t want to know it’s there. In this class, writers will gain an array of highly pragmatic tools for burying the backstory and installing the plumbing, all without their readers becoming aware of it.

Are you an expert in a field? Do you have a passion for a topic you want to share with the world? Or maybe you would like to write a book to increase business in your field? It’s all possible. Join Julie as she takes you from discovering your sellable idea to the publishing possibilities for your finished product. She will discuss the current state of traditional nonfiction publishing as well as why personal publishing has become a powerful, lucrative and quick way to dispense your ideas to an audience. As you may have noticed, the word book no longer means words on paper between two covers published by large corporations. All that has changed in favor of the author. Your ideas can now take many forms from a printed or electronic book and workbook to a course or interactive product on a tablet. The goal of this class is to help you find your perfect topic and the best way to present it to your readers.
