Pre-Festival Workshops

When Words Collide is pleased to announce its pre-festival workshop series!

We asked this year's festival guests (and some returning past guests) if they would be willing to come to the festival a couple of days early and host intensive workshops on various topics. To our delight, most said yes!

These workshops have limited seating and are available on a first-come first serve basis, so act fast if you wish to attend one of them.

For those writers looking for an intimate, hands-on workshop experience with our festival guests, this is your opportunity.

Details regarding the workshops.

Email us to reserve your seat or add your name to a waiting list.


Please note that due to her busy schedule, Adrienne Kerr is no longer able to facilitate a critique workshop. However, she will instead be providing a 1-day presentation workshop on Wednesday, August 6 on The Author-Publisher Relationship. The upside is that there is room for additional participants. For those looking forward to a critique workshop, we are currently looking into scheduling something starting the Monday after the festival.
