Workshops smerkshops

As I continue to hone my craft, painful shaving by painful shaving, I’m testing out a few different resources.

1) Skillshare: I just started a workshop on humor writing with Grace Bello. My first short story is due next Friday. It was very affordable ($12), you can adapt the assignments to fit your schedule and it only last six weeks. This is my first Skillshare experience so I’ll let you know how it goes.

2) Writer’s Digest Live Webinar: I’ve signed up for Mary Kole’s webinar on writing for the young adult and middle grade market. It was a little more pricey, at $89. (I also used an online coupon.) While you can view archived sessions, to ask live questions you need to log in real-time. It includes a partial critique after the session so I’ll definitely take advantage of that perk.

3) SCBWI Fall Conference: The Dude and I will be taking a long weekend soon and decamping to Detroit for this little soiree. I’ve signed up for a writing workshop with Libba Bray Friday afternoon and then we have a slate of sessions on Saturday. This will be my first Michigan SCBWI experience so I’m looking forward to it.

Best of luck to those continuing on with GUTGAA!

  1. Good luck on all those upcoming events! I’d love to join SCBWI, but they said they don’t offer a discounted membership to students and part-time workers at the moment. Maybe someday it’ll be in budget.

    I nominated you for an award: http://carrieannebrownian.wordpress.com/2012/09/24/one-lovely-blog-award/

    • Thank you Carrie Ann, that’s so sweet of you. It’s too bad they don’t offer a student membership, they should what with all the younger YA writers out there. Best wishes to see you at a future meeting~
