Finishing Your Novel Workshop

Finishing Your Novel Workshop NJ

Writing workshop in New Jersey
January 16-19, 2015
Led by Carol Plum-Ucci

Stuck? This workshop is for writers who are mired in a long prose piece and need a spark to advance. If you’re serious about publishing your novel and want to overcome the changing dynamics of the industry, this is the workshop for you. The motivating workshop leader will coach you with exercises, analyses and thoughtful encouragement. She will discuss steps for finishing your manuscript and the process of finding an agent. Be ready to submit up to 20 pages of your novel plus a 2-page synopsis by Dec. 15 (or if registering after that date, submit within a week of registering). The workshop leader and participants will read each manuscript before the Getaway. There is a $200 surcharge for this workshop.

*Limited to just 4 participants.*

 

“This has been a transcendent experience. In the top 5 workshop experiences I’ve ever had, and I don’t impress easily! Carol Plum-Ucci is a goddess!!!”
~ Margaret, Finishing Your Novel Participant
