Midwest Writers Workshop

Often in the universe of writers, there is talk of conferences and workshops. Most of the time they seem to be located in New York or Los Angeles because there are beaucoup agencies in these cities. However, occasionally a few are held in the Midwest.

Midwest Writers Group

One such event is called the Midwest Writers Workshop and will be held July 20-22, 2017 at L.A. Pittenger Student Center in partnership with Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. You can find them on twitter @MidwestWriters or the hashtag #MWW to keep up on news. 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 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. The workshop is packed with sessions on the craft of writing and the business of writing.

Some of participants will be:

AGENTS

EDITORS:

AUTHORS:

To see all the faculty, go here. 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!

On August 1st, 2016, Harlequin put a call out for writers of sexy, contemporary romance because they’re launching a new sexy contemporary series! They dubbed this the #SexyBlitz submissions. Ooo-la-la. So if you have a manuscript you’ve polished in this category, this is for you. But you need to hurry because the subs close on September 15, 2016.

You’ll need to send your first three chapters and a synopsis to submit. But be sure and check out their series guidelines before sending your manuscript!

As always, good luck!

Okay, so there are imprints with Harlequin that you can continue to sub your juicy romance novels. But the Ooooh..Canada Romance Subs get to bypass the slush pile through September 12th, 2016! Thus, if you’ve written an unputdownable manuscript with a Canadian hero, this is nearly your final call.

You’ll need to send your first chapter and a 3-7 page synopsis to Harlequin’s Ooooh…Canada Blitz. And as always, good luck!
