Pre-Festival Workshops

New for 2013, 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.

Due to last-minute cancellations we have a few seats remaining. Manuscript deadline for new participants has been extended to July 1st.

Patricia Briggs  Character & Voice (2 days) SOLD OUT
Michael Cassutt  TV Script Writing (2 days) 4 seats available
Barbara Fradkin   Mystery & Suspense (2 days) CLOSED TO NEW REGISTRANTS
D. B. Jackson / David B. Coe  Fantasy (2 days) SOLD OUT
Shirlee Matheson  Memoirs/Biographies (2 days) CANCELLED, SORRY
Jack Whyte  Manuscript Strengths and Weaknesses (Half-Day) CANCELLED, SORRY

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

Details regarding the workshops.
