Calling the Next Great American Author . . .

From our friends at Taliesin Nexus, for creative types who love liberty:

Calling the next great American author!  If that’s you, then September 9 – 11, 2016, have us fly you out to New York City, put you up in a hotel, and spend an entire weekend developing your work at the Calliope Authors Workshop. You will have the opportunity to get thorough notes on your in-progress work as well as career advice from successful novelists, nonfiction authors, publishers, and literary agents.

Part of what makes Calliope unique is that while most writing workshops focus exclusively on short stories, we accept novels, long-form narrative non-fiction, graphic novels, and short stories. We balance workshopping with panels on Traditional and Self-Publishing Strategies, Research and Outlining, and How to Develop an Effective Career Plan. Moreover, you’ll be joined by 12 mentors and panelists and 15 peers, growing your personal network and knowledge of the publishing industry.

Taliesin Nexus also awards five scholarships annually to students to help pay for study in an MFA program with grants up to $3000.

I’m excited to be one of the panelists at this year’s workshop. If you’re interested, applications are due August 8. Click here for more information!

Webb argued — as ... Read More
