Chuck Wendig


Chuck Wendig is sometimes profane but more often profound, doling out bite-sized writing advice that burrows into the brain like some horrible worm. His "25 Things" lists often go viral, ricocheting around the Internet in search of writers to hit smack in the face. When he isn’t blogging, Tweeting or interviewing other writers, he's writing fiction at a head-spinning clip. His latest novel is "Blackbirds," the story of Miriam Black, a woman whose sass comes from her unwanted psychic ability to picture your death by touching you. He's also the author of "Double Dead," about a vampire who awakens in the middle of the Zombie Apocalypse, as well as its follow-up novella, "Bad Blood." You can get his advice in e-book form: “Confessions of a Freelance Penmonkey” and “500 Ways to Be a Better Writer,” among others. Oh, and if that weren't enough, he's a Sundance Screenwriting Fellow, game designer, father and grower of a great damn beard.

Yes, he’s a novelist and a blogger and a screenwriter and a game designer, but it’s all really the same: Chuck Wendig is a Storyteller. Get his no-holds-barred insight and advice at the 2012 Crossroads Writers Conference, October 5-7, at the Macon Convention Center and Marriott City Center Hotel.
