FOR WRITERS: PLOT AND STRUCTURE IN FICTION

This intensive, moderated by veteran editor and publisher Emma Dryden, provides seminar-style instruction on the nemesis of all writers . . . plot.

WRITER'S ROUNDTABLE

The Writers’ Roundtable Intensive is intended for committed writers with submission–ready material. All intensive attendees have the opportunity to have the first 500 words of a manuscript reviewed during round table critiques lead by an editor or agent during a morning and an afternoon small-group critique session. This is a unique opportunity for serious writers to present their work, and get feedback from peers and decision-making professionals in the field.

The roundtable includes:

Two critique sessions

Morning Panel: Openings, Hooks & Grabbers with editors:

Wendy Loggia – Delacorte/Random House

Andrew Harwell- HarperCollins

Amanda Maciel – Scholastic

Moderated by Alex Penfold, Upstart Crow

Afternoon session: Revision Mapping with Harold Underdown
