Writing and Publishing Your Fiction Workshop
Writing workshop in New Jersey
January 16-19, 2015
Led by Richard Weems
Writing and Publishing Your Fiction
This workshop will get you playing with the fundamentals of fiction: plot, structure, voice, point of view, character development and dialogue. On both Saturday and Sunday morning, you will receive inspiring exercises which you can use as starting points for new stories or a weekend-long project. In the afternoons you will receive generous and helpful feedback. Monday morning will be full of insider information and advice on where and how to submit your work for publication. This is the ideal workshop to take if you want to write short stories. “Re-PETERs” welcome: prompts, readings and craft discussion will differ each year offered.
*Limited to just 10 participants.*
“I just wanted to thank you again for a great workshop. You presented a lot of food for thought and numerous sources to explore how ‘published’ authors have perfected their craft. I thought we had an interesting mix of writing styles and a group who not only offered helpful suggestions but did so with respect and encouragement. I think you set the tone for that type of interaction to occur. I hope I will be able to attend another workshop with you in the future.”
