Writing Well-Done: How Do You Know Your Work is Reader Ready?

Fiction writer Bryan Leung, will address this topic in his keynote lecture for this year’s Gathering of Writers, “Raw, Rare, Medium, or Well-done: When can You Stick a Fork in It? (vegetarian version)”.

Leung offers a 100% guarantee that the moment his lecture is over, “…you will know with absolute certainty when any piece of writing you are working on is done, complete, fin.”

Though, he says, Restrictions may apply: Side effects may include nausea, writer’s block, inner peace, turf toe, prolific output, self-doubt, self-confidence, mixed metaphors, and/or a lifetime of satisfying manuscripts. You will learn ways to know when your story, poem, essay, or play is finished—and much, much more.

Join us at the Indiana Landmarks Center when Indiana's best established and emerging writers will meet for a full day of classes on the writing craft.  Sessions in poetry, fiction, playwriting and creative nonfiction will be presented by nine accomplished Indiana writers, including Andrew Black, Brian Brodeur, Mary Ann Cain, Sarah Gerkensmeyer, Jean Harper, George Kalamaras, Adrian Matejka, Michael McColly and Greg Schwipps.  You’ll leave full of inspiration, armed with ideas to reach the moment when you know your work is well-done—along with a hundred other writers who feel the same way.
