“As a result of this workshop, I have the tools necessary to construct and execute a plan for the revision of my first draft. I have valuable critique to use as part of that revision, and I have learned more about specific areas of craft, which will serve me well moving forward.”
The Writing By Writers Manuscript Boot Camp is for the writer who has a full book-length manuscript (novel, memoir, short story or poetry collection) and would like to engage with a small group for a serious and productive response. The long weekend will include an intimate full manuscript workshop, craft talks, readings, an agent panel and individual agent meetings – the perfect pre-publication boot camp for any manuscript. Classes are limited to 5 participants. Click here to apply.
When: Fall Session, November 9-12, 2018 and Spring Session, April 5-8, 2019 at Granlibakken Lake Tahoe, Tahoe City, California.
