Making Good Stories Great: A Conversation about Revision with Heather Bell Adams and The Good Luck Stone and Pam Van Dyk (online)

Note: This is a virtual event.

Heather and Pam will talk about being writing partners, how to take a story from good to great in the revision process, & what types of revisions they did (and didn’t do) for The Good Luck Stone (Heather as author) and The Parasol Flower (Pam as editor). They will take audience questions.

Participants may enter a drawing to win an annotated copy of either The Good Luck Stone or The Parasol Flower, including notes about how things changed during the revision / editing process.

Heather Bell Adams is from Hendersonville, North Carolina, and now lives in Raleigh with her husband, Geoff, and son, Davis. She works as a lawyer, focusing on litigation, and volunteers on the Raleigh Review fiction staff.

Pam Van Dyk is the Managing Editor of Regal House Publishing. She lives in Raleigh, North Carolina. When it comes to her own writing she adheres to the philosophy that one must learn writing from reading. Thus, she spends a great deal of her free time wandering around book stores and adding books to her ever-growing ‘to read’ list.
