Event Description

Speculative worlds need grit and flaws to feel real. This workshop with author David R. Slayton will help you find your world's darker side, the fatal flaw that your heroes can't resolve. We'll look at some historical examples and societal, economic, and resource issues that can help deepen your world's reality.

This is one of many events happening this month for LitFest 2021. For a full breakdown of other programs, visit: www.metrolibrary.org/litfest

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
David R. Slayton grew up in Guthrie, Oklahoma, where finding fantasy novels was pretty challenging and finding fantasy novels with diverse characters was downright impossible. Now he lives in Denver, Colorado and writes the books he always wanted to read. His debut, White Trash Warlock, was published in October 2020 by Blackstone Publishing. The sequel, Trailer Park Trickster, will be released in October 2021. He is represented by the Seymour Agency.

In addition to writing, David is a regular presenter and speaker on writing. He has appeared on panels at Denver Pop Culture Con and taught workshops at the Pikes Peak Writers Conference, Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers, the League of Utah Writers Quills Conference, and the Seymour Agency Winter Retreat. He also regularly speaks to library and high school audiences.
