8th Annual Big Sur Writing Workshop for Adult Fiction, Young Adult and Middle-Grade Fiction

Writing Workshop for Adult Fiction, Young Adult and Middle Grade Fiction, March 12-14, 2010.

A weekend packed with experts in publishing to help writers polish their manuscripts.

Special Saturday evening program with New York Times bestselling thriller author, Barry Eisler!

Congratulation to Vanitha Sankaran who attended the Big Sur Writer's Workshop in 2008. Her book, Watermark: A Novel of the Middle Ages, will be coming out from Avon this April.


Testimonies from the last workshop:
"This is the first conference I have walked away thinking this was worth every penny. I actually feel like I have something of value, and I am a better writer for going."

"The critique groups were amazing. The editors, agents, and authors were very approachable, and their comments/edits were invaluable. The writers in both critique groups shared fresh/unique perspectives, with an uninhibited ear/eye for what was and was not working. I stayed up nearly all night on both nights to create a revised first chapter that's both immediate and evocative...
...kick your butt in a good way workshop. It was inspiring."

"The best part was the intensity. The editors/agents are so down to earth & accessible. I like that serious writers were here to discuss work. It raised the standards for people!"
