January 2019: WIP into Shape free brainstorming workshop

New year, new WIP? Join us for our January brainstorming event and get your work-in-progress moving! Four of our experts will host small-group activities to help you in whatever step of the writing and publishing process you’re in.

But What Comes Next? Brainstorming and Plotting: Join ORWA past president, Christine Enta, and work out whatever you need to, whether it’s at the beginning, middle or end.

First page Critique Round-Table: Jenn Burke will host a small critique group, going over the first page of each person’s manuscript. Bring seven copies of the first page of your work in progress. 

Mastering your Novel Pitch: Jennifer Carole Lewis has become a pitch pro after much practice at RWA. Join her group to work through crafting your written and verbal book pitch, and then practice them.

Tools of the Self-Publishing Trade: Vellum, Draft to Digital, Kobo, Ingram Spark, and more! There are so many self-publishing tools, and Eve knows so many tricks for them! Join Eve’s table and learn how to use these tools to your advantage, get questions answered, and listen to what others have to say about them.
