Writing commercial—or “ popular”—fiction is not about writing to a market or writing hemmed in by genre rules. It’s about crafting the fantasy/mystery/SF/romance/horror story you want to tell, while understanding the market and reader expectations. This workshop will dispel some of the myths about writing commercial fiction and take a hard look at how to make your story stand out from the crowd. It will also touch on the business of commercial fiction writing.
