The Year-Long Write Your Book Workshop
I love this workshop! Over the course of about 10 months, through 28+ class meetings, you get the opportunity to workshop 200+ pages of your manuscript AS YOU WRITE IT! This will be my 12th year leading this workshop and it's always exciting to go on this journey with a new group of writers!
One group meets Monday nights, 7:30-10pm in Arlington, VA. starting in late September and going through July. The other group starts in January, Fridays, 10-12:30opm. Each meeting starts with a writing prompt to get you thinking "differently" about your book -- then there is a lecture/discussion on a particular topic tied to a reading assignment. Finally, we workshop the "chunks." (a chunk is about 30pp of a manuscript.) We workshop about 2 chunks a night -- I make sure we spend 30-40 minutes on each one.
I start taking deposits on April 1st and seating is VERY limited (I plan to take 5-7 in 2017-18). See the registration page to sign up! A $200 deposit will hold your seat. The balance ($1295) will be due by the first meeting.
28+ Mondays, Sept-July 7:30-10pm $1495
