What we're about
WHY DO WRITERS NEED WORKSHOPS? As an editor, I read hundreds of manuscripts every year. Many have a great story to tell, but are not written well enough to meet the exacting standards set by popular authors and expected by publishers, or to satisfy the average reader.
Writing a great story of any kind requires much technical skill, but these skills can be learned. Like all professions, to be the best at what you do, you have to work at it. Many people can tell a story, but if it doesn’t excite and intrigue the reader on the first page they won’t read on.
These skills are needed whatever you are writing: short story, picture book, chapter books for children, poems, memoirs, novels, etc. Every professional had to put in the hard yards to learn their vocation. A writer is no different.
It is time to invest in your dream and take the courses you need.
