Matt Coyle

Come for the program—stay for the surprises!


Struggling with what to give your favorite characters this holiday season? Have they been naughty or nice? Good or evil? Strong or vulnerable? Or worse yet–uninteresting, lack depth, or unmemorable?

Join us for our holiday celebration, Saturday, December 16, when Matt Coyle (aka Santa Claus) and Maddie Margarita discuss gift-giving ideas--good, bad, and ugly–for your characters that will literally change their lives forever!

Of course, there will be fun, books, raffles, a few laughs, terrific insights into writing--and an opportunity to celebrate the holidays, network with fellow writers–and eat!!

Have a favorite cookie recipe—bring it and samples along to share with your tribe!

Have an ugly holiday sweater or outfit? Wear it and compete for the ugliest holiday sweater ever!

***Please purchase your tickets in advance
to ensure admittance at security gate 12!***
