Writers' Round Table SOLD OUT
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.

Writers’ Intensive: World Building: A Hands-On Workshop — SOLD OUT
This intensive, moderated by veteran Editor and Publisher Emma D. Dryden, provides seminar-style instruction on how to build a rich, imaginative and believable world for your fiction. Although all children’s book creators are welcome, (since world-building applies to every work of fiction) the topic and speakers may be of special interest to creators of fantasy, science fiction and other genres of imaginative fiction.

Building Your First Website
Bring a laptop and your brain, leave with a website. Screen, TV, and children’s book writer Nick Confalone will cover the basics of building and maintaining a website, whether it’s an author/illustrator homepage or a showcase of a particular work. There will be no coding involved—everything is graphical and right-brained, and participants will receive one-on-one help during building sessions. We’ll also cover how your website fits into an overall presence online. Participants will get more specifics on what materials to gather ahead of time so you can complete your website in the workshop.
