Structuring and writing a nonfiction book is easy — if you know what to do. And that’s where Erik Deckers comes in. Deckers will lead a workshop on “How to Structure and Write a Nonfiction Book” at the FWA Ponte Vedra Writers meeting 10:30 a.m. Saturday, August 24 at the Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library.
“There are a few different ways to organize a nonfiction book, depending on your subject matter and your purpose, and knowing how you’re going to organize the book can make the thing so much easier to write,” Deckers said. He will provide a step-by-step process for writers to follow.
Deckers is a professional blogger and the co-author of several books on branding and social media. He’s been blogging since 1997, and a newspaper humor columnist since 1994. He has written several radio and stage plays, and numerous business articles. Deckers was the Spring 2016 writer-in-residence at the Jack Kerouac House in Orlando, and now serves on the board of directors. He recently published his first humor novel, “Mackinac Island Nation,” which is available on Amazon in Kindle and paperback form.
The Ponte Vedra Writers group is part of the Florida Writers Association, a statewide, nonprofit organization with nearly 1,500 members dedicated to the support of both aspiring and published writers in any genre.
