How to Focus and Write for the Reader

For whom does the writer write? While the answer may seem obvious, keeping the reader top of mind is not always as easy as it sounds.  In Jerry Amernic’s workshop, How to Focus and Write for the Reader, writers will learn the art of readying themselves for the task at hand.  Focus is critical.  Amernic will use popular books and films to illustrate his points and attendees will get the chance to demonstrate their learning through the use of their own work.  There will be a discussion about the all-important reader and why writers can never take their eye off this person. Amernic shows what can happen when the writer ignores the reader.


Jerry Amernic is an author of fiction and non-fiction. He’s been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, college instructor of journalism and communications, and media consultant. His first novel Gift of the Bambino received wide praise. His historical novels include The Last Witness which is about the last living survivor of the Holocaust, and the biblical suspense tale QUMRAN. Jerry’s non-fiction books include VICTIMS: The Orphans of Justice, DUTY – The Life of a Cop (memoir of Julian Fantino), and BABE RUTH – A Superstar’s Legacy. He has been published by big presses, small presses, and imprint houses, and he has self-published.
