GRABBING THE READER WORKSHOP JANUARY 2023
REGISTRATION DATES: DECEMBER 26, 2022 THROUGH JANUARY 12, 2023
WORKSHOP DATES: JANUARY 15-22, 2023

 

You’re working on your first (or next) novel and wonder if it’s any good. All those other writers seem to have it all together. Wouldn’t it be great to take a peek at the first 500 words of THEIR manuscript? And wouldn’t it be even better if others would give you feedback on YOUR first 500 words? 

That’s the idea behind the GRABBING THE READER WORKSHOP, a free, week-long event for members. You bravely open yourself up to a group of 5-7 other WFWA writing peers to read your work and give you feedback, while agreeing to take time to read their work and give them feedback as well. 

If you want to sell a book, you need to GRAB THE READER within the first 500 words. Agents, editors, potential interviewers, and readers (who will become reviewers) all need to want to keep reading. 

Take the time in this safe environment to workshop your beginning pages so you’ll be ready when the time comes.

This is a FREE event for all WFWA Members.

As an addition this year, we are also offering "Grabbing the Reader with a Coach" the week after Grabbing the Reader concludes. Please see below for additional details.

GRABBING THE READER WITH A COACH WORKSHOP JANUARY 2023
 
REGISTRATION DATES: DECEMBER 26, 2022 THROUGH JANUARY 12, 2023
WORKSHOP DATES: JANUARY 23-30, 2023

NEW for 2023!

The Grabbing the Reader with a Coach Workshop is the next step to perfecting those important first 500 words of your WIP after the Grabbing the Reader workshop.

In this weeklong workshop, you will work with a coach in a group setting of 5 WFWA peers or less. The coaches are WFWA members and are excited to work with you on perfecting your first 500 words.

This workshop will run similarly to Grabbing the Reader but with the added benefit of a coaching expert offering you valuable advice, suggestions, and comments.

To sell a book, you need to GRAB THE READER within the first 500 words. Agents, editors, potential interviewers, and readers (who will become reviewers) must want to keep reading. 

Take the time in this safe environment to workshop your beginning pages with a coach so you’ll be ready when the time comes. This is also the perfect time if you have never had the pleasure of working with a coach before. This workshop will give you a fantastic taste of the coaching experience and what one can do for you as an author!
