Presenter Introduction

Well, hello! I know it's been a little quiet around here. As you can imagine, this is a crazy busy time here at SiWC Central as we get all the details sewn up to make SiWC the best it can be.

I am delighted to announce that we've added a new presenter to our roster for this year. Elizabeth Lyon is a freelance editor and a popular presenter who's an old friend of our conference. We're delighted to have her back for the first time in a few years.

Elizabeth will be teaching workshops and taking blue pencil appointments. Here's her bio:

Elizabeth Lyon is the author of Nonfiction Book Proposals Anybody Can Write, The Sell Your Novel Tool Kit, A Writer’s Guide to Nonfiction, A Writer’s Guide to Fiction, National Directory of Editors & Writers, and Manuscript Makeover: Revision Techniques No Fiction Writer Can Afford to Ignore. “The Writer” magazine selected Manuscript Makeover as one of the “8 Great Writing Books of 2008,” describing it as “perhaps the most comprehensive book on revising fiction.” Lyon lives in Springfield, Oregon.


Welcome back to SiWC, Elizabeth!


Elizabeth Lyon is amazing. In previous years at SiWC, I've taking her workshops and her Master's Class … well worth every moment. Can't wait to see her again.

Really glad to see that Elizabeth's going to be back at this year's conference. I've missed her presence and her smile over the past couple of occasions, so I'm looking forward to seeing her back in action again this October.
