WRITING HURTS LIKE HELL WORKSHOP
Writing Hurts Like Hell Weekend Workshop
How often do you say, “Someday I’m going to write a novel!” You have a great idea for a story: something you know will sell, or maybe even get made into a movie; something from your life, or that just sprung out of you mind one day and kept growing in your imagination, but you just can’t get it moving into a finished story ready for publication.
The Weekend Writing Hurts Like Hell is a two day workshop designed to help you get that story out of your mind and into something you can look at and say, “I did it.” This workshop will kick-start your creative engine and give you the tools you need to start your first novel, see it through to the finish, find a publisher, and promote your book. In just one weekend, you'll learn how to take a small idea and turn it into a novel. You'll learn how to create characters that breathe and bleed. You’ll construct fictional worlds where your readers will be able to smell the air and feel the sun on their necks. You’ll learn how to break down the barriers to your creativity. Classes will be held in various locations around the city.
In addition to the workshop, you will receive:
A publishing kit to organize and track your hunt for a publisher or agent, including sample query letters for both fiction and non-fiction;
Handouts with exercises on special topics such as how to write sex, violence, and humour;
A copy of e-Marketing Tools for Writers, 3rd Edition and How to Get Published, A Guide to Publishing in the 21st Century;
A complete kit to organize and track your hunt for a publisher or agent, including sample query letters for both fiction and non-fiction.
The techniques you'll learn in this workshop can be applied to other forms of writing as well: poetry, creative journaling, business writing, short fiction, blogging, podcasting, screen writing, and others.
