Young Author Workshops in 2014

Hello, everyone!

Here’s something for you to pass on to local young people who might be interested — classes will be limited to around 20, so be sure to sign up fast!

I will be doing four writing workshops at the Rust Library here in Loudoun County (Leesburg), FOR TEENS ONLY!
Here is the schedule:

Wednesday January 22, 7-8pm
Session 1: What makes a story? How to wrangle your ideas, formulate your plot, and tell a story from beginning to end.

Wednesday January 29, 7-8pm
Session 2: Finish what you start! You have a great beginning, but this could go on forever. Where do you stop? And how?

Wednesday February 5, 7-8pm
Session 3: Get yourself out there! Formatting manuscripts, proper submission etiquette, and how to find the short story market that’s right for you.

Wednesday February 12, 7-8pm
Session 4: But…I’m AWESOME! Dealing with rejection. Dealing with edits and critiques. Discussing the business of publishing.
