Why would a university host a writers conference? One reason is to share the amazing resources available in a large research library. Check the acknowledgements at the end of any book and count the number of librarians who have contributed to the success of our most prominent writers.
It doesn't matter if you are writing for page, large or small screen. An experienced reference librarian can be your guide as you develop the narrative, paint the scene and craft the dialog. You want your reader to leave their world for a time and enter a believable place where they experience your story.
On Friday, April 20 Deborah Harkness, the author of the best selling 'A Discovery of Witches' will share her story and the critical role of research in creating the world of 'The All Souls Trilogy'. Joining her will be one of the history librarians who assisted her in her effort.
Join Deborah and a stellar cast of creative professionals for the first USC Writers Conference in Los Angeles and find authenticity in the library.
