We all have favorite lines that leapt off the page and stayed with us ever since we read it. In this presentation, we’ll focus on strengthening imagery in your writing–while avoiding purple prose–and go over when to implement imagery so it emphasizes important moments in your story, becomes an integral part of your book’s tone, and doesn’t bog down the reader.
Kaela Rivera was raised to believe in will-o’-the-wisps and el chupacabra, but even ghost stories couldn’t stop her from reading in the isolated treetops, caves, and creeks of Tennessee’s Appalachian forests.
She still believes in the folktales of her Mexican-American and British parents, but now she writes about them from the adventure-filled mountains of the Wild West. When she’s not crafting stories, she’s using her English degree from BYU-I as an editor for a marketing company (or secretly doodling her characters in the margins of her notebook). Her debut novel, Cece Rios and the Desert of Souls, comes out April 13, 2021.
Her biggest hope is to highlight and explore the beauty of cultural differences—and how sharing those differences can bring us all closer.
