The Big Sur Children’s Writing Workshop/Advanced Master Class, March 4-6th, 2016
Due to many, many requests from former attendees this coming March 4th weekend, the Big Sur Writing Workshops is proud to announce the first Advanced Workshop with master classes for juvenile fiction to be given by award-winning authors, agents from the Andrea Brown Literary Agency, and editors.
[Please note: the Advanced Workshop will be held instead of the traditional writing workshop in March. What’s the main difference? The Advanced Workshop is limited to 32 participants, much smaller – and more intimate – than our normal workshops. The traditional workshop will return in December, so join our email list here and be alerted once we open registration.]
Faculty members include Cheryl Klein of Arthur Levine Books/Scholastic Press (Editor of the HARRY POTTER Books in America) and Melissa Manlove, Editor at Chronicle Books. Authors will include NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author, Catherine Ryan Hyde, Lewis Buzbee, Eric Adams and Eric Elfman. Check out the full faculty HERE.
Connect with Agents
Participating Andrea Brown agents are always on the look-out for new talent. Over the past 18 years, they’ve brokered countless publishing deals between workshop participants and publishers. Who knows, you could be next!
The weekend format will include critique groups as well as master class sessions designed to enhance your craft dealing with structure, plot development, character development, etc. as well as to add commercial potential to your writing.
If you are a writer of middle grade or young adult fiction and want to bring your work up a notch and have already polished your material, workshopped or revised with critique groups, and feel your work is almost ready to send to agents and editors, this may be the perfect weekend workshop for you. Check out testimonials of satisfied alumni here.
Space is Limited
Advanced Workshop attendance will be limited to 32 participants, who must send the first chapters ahead for approval into the workshop. One price includes workshop, all meals from Friday night until Sunday lunch, and housing in cottages for two nights at the world-famous Big Sur Lodge.
