Tuesday, October 11 Special Seminar: “Dead Ends and How to Get Around Them” with Cynthia Ruchti

Nobody claims that the writing life is one smooth, straight road from idea to published book. It’s more like a labyrinth with endless twists, turns, and more than a few dead ends. But labyrinths are designed to challenge, not defeat. There are paths through. Finding them often takes some adjusting, leaning on the wisdom of trusted friends and advisors, and learning how not to keep trying the same dead-end options. In this session, you’ll learn what to do when it seems like you’ve hit a dead end.

Cynthia Ruchti is an award-winning author of more than 36 books, both fiction and non-fiction. She’s also a literary agent with Books & Such Literary Management. She started out her adult career working in a chemistry lab, but then was given an opportunity to write a scripted fifteen-minute radio broadcast which aired on 48 stations across the country. She and her grade school sweetheart husband live in the heart of Wisconsin not far from their three children and six (to-date) grandchildren. Her tagline is: “I can’t unravel. I’m hemmed in hope.” cynthiaruchti.com
