WordSmitten Writers Workshop

Meet working authors and journalists in a relaxed atmosphere to brainstorm about "the book biz" and form productive critique groups. Come to a WordSmitten Writers Workshop to review work, trade literary tips, make friends and have fun with professional and dedicated fiction and non-fiction writers.

Tune in to the WordSmitten "About the Books" talk radio show.

Recent guests include Pulitzer Prize-winning authors Jane Smiley (A Thousand Acres), Elizabeth Strout (Olive Kitteridge) and Edward P. Jones (The Known World). Listen to writing tips from Sara Nelson, former editor-in-chief of Publishers Weekly.

On About the Books, hear author and journalist, Mr. Gay Talese (Honor Thy Father) who wrote the article "Frank Sinatra Has a Cold" for Esquire, talk about breaking new ground in writing his memoir and in the new creative journalism.

Discover an interview with Natalie Goldberg (Writing Down the Bones), noted as a celebrated writing teacher, and listen to her discuss her innovative "prompts" for getting a story started.

Tune in to the WordSmitten broadcast, "About the Books," on WLSS-AM radio, BTR, NPR and download our show's archived broadcasts from iTunes http://tinyurl.com/38ceew6 (keyword: WordSmitten) and tune in live on Sunday afternoons to our New York broadcast.

All writers and should-be writers are welcome. To join, there is a short review process and you'll be assigned to one of the workshops. Please submit five pages of your current work for the group to review.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
