Midwest Writers Workshop

Midwest Writers Group

This workshop will be held July 21-23, 2016 at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. MWW states the mission is to give all writers the opportunity to improve their craft, to associate with highly credentialed professionals, and to network with other writers.

They have more than 45 different instructional sessions with top quality faculty during their three-day program on everything from fiction to nonfiction, marketing, and ways to get your creative juices flowing. Thursday focuses on genre-specific intensive sessions. Friday and Saturday are packed with sessions on the craft of writing and the business of writing.

Some of the faculty includes agents:

Rachel Ekstrom – Irene Goodman Literary Agency
Molly Jaffa – Folio Literary Management
Lauren MacLeod – The Strothman Agency
Jim McCarthy – Vice President, Dystel & Goderich Literary Management
Uwe Stender – TriadaUS Literary Agency
Brent Taylor – TriadaUS Literary Agency

And editors:

April Osborn – Associate Editor at St. Martin’s Press
Liz Pelletier – Chief Executive Officer and Publisher of Entangled

There are even opportunities for pitching and manuscript evaluations, along with query critiques. Think about it, three days socializing with writerly people! What’s not to love!

As always, good luck and happy learning!
