Writing workshop in New Jersey

Led by Joyce McDonald
This workshop will help you begin the novel you’ve always wanted to write. Come with ideas and notes and develop a plan for writing a must-read book. Learn how to structure your plot, develop your characters, explore different points of view and improve your dialogue-writing skills. Discussions, writing prompts and supportive feedback will get your big project off to an energized start.
*Limited to just 10 participants.*
“What a great opportunity this is to escape into the world of writing for a long weekend, to work with award-winning poets and writers, to meet and network with other fellow writers and to just have a ripping good time. Kudos to Peter, Stockton and everyone involved for another excellent conference!”
~ Bruce, Cherry Hill, NJ
