FLA Winter After Dark2021
Virtual Professional Development Series
Tuesdays – 6:30-7:30pm Eastern Time
Free for FLA Members!
I will be speaking at the 2021 FLA Convention On 2-16-2021 From 6:30pm to 7:30pm. on Finding YOUR Voice, based on my Florida Sunshine State nominated book “Metal Mouth”
Sometimes, it’s hard for a young author to discover their writer voice. Other times, they struggle just trying to find their voice at all. In this concurrent session, author Jaimie Engle shares how to build voice as an author, through character, and as a person, based off her Kirkus Editor’s Choice awarded novel & Florida Sunshine State Book List Nominee Metal Mouth (2020).
The conference is free to FLA Members, you can join FLA at: http://flareads.org/membership/.
