2. Whole Novel Workshop

You know there is nothing I like more than an intense writing retreat, so I am THRILLED to be able to make this announcement:

This October, Carolyn Coman and Tim Wynne-Jones will be offering a whole novel workshop at the Highlights Foundation.

It is a fantastic opportunity to jump into the writing/revision process with two masters of the craft.

Lucky me--I will be the TA for the week!

If you are interested, please check out the website now. They will only take eight writers, and applications and writing samples are due soon.

Please ask me any questions about this opportunity to develop as a writer!   And according to good sources, Honesdale is gorgeous.  The food is great, and the experience inspiring and motivating.

Email me with questions.....
