Sure, you may not be a novelist, but that doesn't mean you're not a creative writer. Creative writing is key to hooking a user and making them a long-term reader or customer – think product packaging, blogs, emails, and websites. Just ask critically acclaimed novelist Georgia Clark, it takes motivation, perseverance, and inspiration to craft a good story, and it's not easy! Join this exclusive hour-long session with Georgia to learn her tricks to becoming a better writer and you'll be writing your best content in no time. MEET THE SPEAKER: Georgia Clark is an author, performer and screenwriter based in Brooklyn. She wrote the critically acclaimed novel, The Regulars, and the "witty, sexy" (L.A. Times) The Bucket List, both Simon & Schuster. Georgia is the host/founder of the storytelling night, Generation Women, which invites six generations of women to tell a story on a theme, and she is currently developing The Regulars as a TV show for E!. The Bucket List: From the author of the critically acclaimed “lively and engrossing parable for women of all generations” (Harper’s Bazaar) The Regulars­ comes a deeply funny and thoughtful tale of a young woman who, after discovering she has the breast cancer gene, embarks on an unforgettable bucket list adventure. Twenty-five-old Lacey Whitman is blindsided when she’s diagnosed with the BRCA1 gene mutation: the “breast cancer” gene. Her high hereditary risk forces a decision: increased surveillance or the more radical step of a preventative double mastectomy. To help her make her choice, she (and her friends) creates a “boob bucket list”: everything she wants do with and for her boobs before a possible surgery. This kicks off a year of sensual exploration and sexual entertainment for the quick-witted Lacey Whitman.
