featuring 11 authors, published in variety of genres.

The authors this year include Jackie Kessler, Amalie Howard, Char Bennardo, Dianne Salerni, Susan Shaw, Victoria Schwab, Margie Gelbwasser, Jackie Dolamore, Brigid Kemmerer, Gwendolyn Heasley, and Ellen Jensen Abbott.

The event will be held immediately prior to the PAYA Festival. This event requires pre-registration. The price is $35 BEFORE August 7th and $40 AFTER August 7th.

The two-hour workshop includes a panel of each author speaking on a variety of topics related to writing and publishing. Then, authors and attendees will split into small, pre-determined groups with 1-3 authors and up to 3 attendees. Each attendee is asked to bring the first three pages of their WIP, which will be read in the small group, and receive a critique from the other attendees and authors in the group. There will also be time to ask specific questions to the authors in your group.
