One of the most popular formal education avenues that exist today is a creative writing master’s in fine arts. However, not everyone can commit to three years of formal education. In this workshop, writers will learn about the principles that are taught in a university such as creative writing resources, networking techniques, reading outside your genre, deadlines, blurbs and queries. Attendees will walk away with action items and to-do lists on where they can obtain the same information that is readily available in an MFA program.

The workshop is one hour and open to attendees at all skill levels.

Join us online or in-person!
