It's WEEK 29 of Bakersfield's own imaginirium! The Random Writers Workshop continues to inspire creative writers and fuel aspiring authors with literary knowledge and wisdom.
The Random Writers Workshop is held weekly at Russo's Books in Bakersfield, Calif. and is headed up by Nick Belardes (journalist, illustrator, photographer, author of Random Obsessions, Lords: Part One, the first Twitter Lit ever Small Places, and former creative writer for the Fremont Street Experience).
Lectures and discussions have covered creative writing tips on getting published, as well as how to organize a novel, how to write narrative, how to get proper focus for chapters, how to write dialogue, setting, character development, flash fiction, point of view (and hellish verb tense), query letters and more.
Past guests have included Steve Alten, Caroline Leavitt, Joseph Matheny, Bonnie Hearn Hill, Elizabeth Collins, Duke Haney, Gina Frangello, Jonathan Evison, David Morrell, Greg Olear, Lauren Baratz-Logsted and more...
In WEEK 29 (7/28) Nick Belardes returns from the heated streets of Las Vegas to once again help kick the Bakersfield literary scene in the ass.
