Poor Man’s Workshop

writing workshop

The poor man’s workshop evolved from the many wonderful full writing workshops run around the world. The big difference is that the main focus of this workshop is to critique each other’s work. While in other full workshops, visiting authors may be brought in to teach and mentor the participants. In a poor man’s workshop, participants mentor each other. Writing workshops are a chance to critique and be critiqued by 9 other authors over the course of a weekend. This workshop will run over two days. You will receive your package of stories no later than August 15th, and will have two months to complete your critiques. All stories should be read and critiqued before the event.

Saturday 9:00 – 5:00 (lunch and refreshment’s provided)
