Kathleen O’Neal Gear and W. Michael Gear are hosting a Wyoming Writer’s conference workshop in fiction writing. Their latest book, “People of the Nightland,” is set 13,000 years ago at the edges of a huge melt-water lake called Lake Agassiz. The Gears have been writing fiction in their field of archeology since 1986. First published in 1990, they have sold millions of copies and their work has been printed worldwide in 23 languages. Their workshop will discuss topics how to put a manuscript together, the dos and don’ts of producing a manuscript and how to treat yourself as a professional once you’ve sold it, and will also relate some publishing-horror stories.
The Wyoming Writer’s Conference runs from June 1-3, at the Holiday Inn of the Waters in Thermopolis. Cost is $135 for members, $160 for non-members. Other workshop presenters include Tim Sandlin–screenwriting, Dr. Toran Isom–children’s books, Sandra Alcosser–poetry, and John Helfers–editor. Go to the Wyoming Writers website at www.wyowriters.org
