Patricia A. Smith – James River Writers Conference, Richmond, VA

With:

Since 2003, the James River Writers Conference has attracted award-winning authors and highly regarded editors and agents from around the country to share their wisdom about the craft and business of writing and publishing.

More than 300 people attend this multi-day event, known for its inspiring, collegial atmosphere and Southern hospitality.

Breakout session: “Heroes vs. Villains” featuring Marguerite Bennett, Booker T. Mattison, Angele McQuade, and Patricia A. Smith, author of The Year of Needy Girls. Moderated by Douglas Jones. Gone are the days of mustache-twirling villains and heroes who save the day–every day. What twist of fate separates a villain from a hero or anti-hero? Why are relatable heroes and villains important to storytelling?

The Breakout Session will take place in Room E11A.
