What Writers Need to Know about Contacting Agents and Editors

11/17/2018 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm
Poetry/Fiction/Creative Nonfiction
Workshop

Even the best writing can get lost in the piles of manuscripts that editors and literary agents sort through on a daily basis. The manuscripts that rise to the top and capture the attention of the editor have one thing in common—they all have great query letters! A query letter is a letter that you send to an editor or agent in order to entice them to read your work. The best query letters not only make your story seem irresistible; they also persuade the editor that your product will sell.

This workshop will explore strategies for approaching revision for all genres in fiction, as well as give writers the opportunity to put them into practice.

We'll also be digging into how to deal with our inner critics and some of the other psychological stumbling blocks that often come up for writers during revision.

Workshop

So you’ve finally got a handle on the Scrivener basics. You’ve been using the software for drafting and revising, and you can compile and export a document like a pro. But do you ever feel like you aren’t using Scrivener to its full potential? Do you scroll through the menus, wondering what exactly all these functions are? Do you want to branch out from using Scrivener for fiction and explore your options for other types of writing, including screenplays or scholarly work?

Do you struggle to find the right title for your work? Do you suffer from "title shame”? Do you number your work or otherwise refuse to even try to create titles? We feel your pain.

In this workshop, we’ll learn to reverse engineer the way great titles are formed to help us discover many new options for titling our works.

Conquering the Freshman Fifteen (Pages!)

10/28/2018 - 9:30am to 4:30pm
Fiction
Workshop

Your first fifteen pages need to thrust the reader right into the action of the story. Oh, and also inspire an emotional connection to the character. While simultaneously providing just enough description to set the scene – without forgetting to plant some tantalizing questions to keep us turning the pages – and making the right promises about the story to come, too – and is there any way you could sneak some zesty dialogue in there while you’re at it?

Writing can be challenging. Some would say even straight-up intimidating. We can't find the words that exactly capture what we mean. If we’re looking for inspiration outside of ourselves, we don’t know where to start, and if we we want to write about our own lives, we aren’t sure if we want to dig that deeply. Yet something inside always insists, I should be writing. In this workshop we will push through all our blocks in order to get to the writing that calls from inside us.
