Just wanted to say that I'm going to this! I think it will be a great weekend and I believe there's still space. I've never been to the Writing Barn before but I was lucky enough to win a critique with Jo last year. She was wonderful--has a very nice way of teaching. So if you're interested in getting better at revision, this could be a good one to check out!

Thanks, Jean and dinalapomy  ::-)
cnotes, I had a great time at the Writing Barn's Francisco Stork workshop. When I start a new project, I'll be looking for another class there.

Darcy Pattison is offering three events over the weekend of August 22-25th, 2014 in the Boston area, and there are still spaces available.

*Build an Author Website: Friday, August 22, 2014, 9 AM-3 PM
*Novel Revision Retreat: Friday, August 22, 3 PM-Sunday, August 24, 2014 1 PM
*Picture Book Workshop: Monday, August 25, 2014, 9 AM-3PM

There are brochures available for each event at http://annebroyles.com/whats-new.html (scroll down below Darcy's photo).

If you've completed a draft of a young adult or middle grade novel, Darcy's NOVEL REVISION RETREAT might be the perfect catalyst for revision. Here's more info:

Pattison, author of Novel Metamorphisis: Uncommon Ways to Revise and numerous children's books, structures the weekend so that each participant gets maximum feedback for his or her novel. The weekend includes small groups (manuscript exchange BY July 25 to allow time for reading). You will take an inventory of your book, and work through a revision process that will:
          *Cut straight to the heart of your manuscript's problems
          *Develop your writing and editing skills
          *Understand the critical underlying structure of your story
          *Learn theory as you work
          *Spark in-depth discussions in your critique group


Feel free to email questions to the event organizer, Anne Broyles, at annebroyles@annebroyles.com.

There are still a few spaces in the Darcy Pattison Novel Revision Retreat August 22-24th north of Boston. I'm posting the details one more time in hopes someone is ready to revise their middle grade or young adult novel, and these  dates work. (The other events also still have openings.)
