Libbie Hawker, author of over a dozen books, including Take Off Your Pants! (a nonthreatening way of outlining), Making It in Historical Fiction, and Gotta Read It! (about developing pitches), will share the secrets of outlining your books for better, faster writing. She'll also dive into the details of establishing and maintaining a writing career without an agent in No Agent? No Problem! 

Take Off Your Pants!: Libbie Hawker explains the benefits and technique of planning a story before you begin to write. She’ll show you how to develop a foolproof character arc and plot, how to pace any book for a can’t-put-down reading experience, and how to ensure that your stories are complete and satisfying without wasting time or words.

Hawker’s outlining technique works no matter what genre you write, and no matter the age of your audience. If you want to improve your writing speed, increase your backlist, and ensure a quality book before you even write the first word, this is the meeting for you. 

Take off your pants! It’s time to start outlining.


Libbie Hawker writes historical and literary fiction featuring complex characters and rich details of time and place. She is the author of more than twenty-five novels under three different pen names, as well as the best-selling how-to guide for writers, Take Off Your Pants!: Outline Your Books for Faster, Better Writing. She lives in the San Juan Islands with her husband and two naughty cats.

We'd love to see you there! :)
