Leslie Truex Speaker

Looking for an engaging, speaker that delivers tangible information and how-tos to your writing group? I’d love to come and share my tips, tricks, and insights!

I do in-person and virtual events and interviews. I have spoken at The Virginia Festival of the Book, The Virginia Writers Club Navigating Your Writing Life, Maryland Writers Association, Malice Domestic, Suffolk Mystery Author Festival, and more. I’ve also done workshops through Piedmont Virginia Community College’s Workforce Services.

I speak or do workshops on topics such as non-fiction writing, querying, working with an agent or publisher, and platform building. As my fiction writing alter-ego, I speak or do workshops on fiction writing (mystery and romance), revision, using dictation, and hybrid authorship. See my complete list of topics below.
