San Francisco Writing Workshop

Per the website, the San Francisco Writing Workshop is a wonderful opportunity to get intense instruction over the course of one day, pitch a literary agent (optional), get your questions answered, and more. Note that there are limited seats at the event (200 total). This workshop is a full-day “How to Get Published” writing event in San Francisco, CA on August 10, 2019.

 

For those attending, this sounds like a great day of learning and marketing yourself. Good luck!

The Atlanta Writing Workshop

Houston Writing Workshop

Lately, you may have noticed that I try to keep you posted on conferences as well as contests. As I learn about events, I will post them for you to decide if you want to participate. Today I bring you information about The Atlanta Writing Workshop in Georgia on February 20, 2016. If you are in the area, you could get feedback from a literary agent or gain writing advise through one of the workshops. This year’s faculty so far includes literary agent Kaylee Davis (Dee Mura Literary); literary agent Stephanie Fretwell-Hill (Red Fox Literary); literary agent Penny Moore (FinePrint Literary Management); literary agent Julie Gwinn (The Seymour Agency); literary agent Kurestin Armada (P.S. Literary); literary agent Pamela Harty (The Knight Agency); literary agent Veronica Park (Corvisiero Literary); and literary agent Sally Apokedak (Leslie H. Stobbe Literary Agency).

As always, the seats are limited and fill up fast, especially since it’s so close to the workshop date. They will post directly on the website when seats are filled.

Happy writing!
