BAIPA member Laurie McAndish King will be teaching two writing classes at the Central Coast Writer’s Conference, September 18th to 20th. The first, “Travel Memoir—Navigating the Wilds of Your Soul” focuses on the seven essential elements of a great travel memoir, emphasizing the way internal landscapes can illuminate external ones. The second class, “From Sense to Sensuality—Enliven any Genre” explores the ways writers can add depth, increase suspense, and create atmosphere with sensual prose. Laurie will also participate in a panel discussion about a travel memoir with novelist Peter Nichols, author of The Rocks and the international bestsellers A Voyage for Madmen and Evolution’s Captain.
