***WORKSHOP REGISTRATION WILL CLOSE ON SATURDAY, APRIL 18, 2015 OR WHEN SPACES RUN OUT, WHICHEVER COMES FIRST***
Each fall, the Children's Book Writers of Los Angeles release a highly-rated Writing Resource and Anthology called Story Sprouts created by YOU.
We invite you to take part in our Story Sprouts series through registration for Writing Day 2015. Every author who attends this workshop will walk away not only with a bevy of inspiration and writing lessons and an expanded writing community, but with a guaranteed publication with YOUR name—and story—THIS fall!
Join your fellow writers on the road to publication for an intensive day of creative writing, and see your work published in the Story Sprouts Anthology (Volume One and Volume Two: Voice) in October.
CBW-LA Founder and President Nutschell Windsor and Publications Director Alana Garrigues will lead attendees on a whirlwind adventure through the writing process, complete with prompts, tips, games, time for reflection and revision ... along with food and socializing along the way! Nutschell's positive, organized and inspirational approach to working with writers has resulted in dozens of glowing reviews on meetup.com.
This year's theme is SETTING! So get ready to learn techniques and writing exercises designed to help you weave time, place and location seamlessly into your stories. Setting is often referred to as the silent character, shaping your story with its own tale. Many authors have created entire books around a SETTING: James Michener, Edward Rutherford and Ken Follett to name a few.
By the end of the workshop, you will have a minimum of two pieces ready for publication in this year's CBW-LA Story Sprouts Anthology.
All writers will receive one complimentary print copy and one complimentary digital copy of the finished product - and additional print and digital copies will be available through Amazon and at future CBW-LA events! It will make a great stocking stuffer for your biggest writing fans on your holiday shopping list. Anticipated publication date Sept. 30, 2015.**
