Writing workshop in New Jersey
January 16-19, 2015
Led by Michelle Cameron
Continuing Your Novel
Novel writing is like a marathon–you have to be in it for the
long haul. This workshop will include "off the page exercises"
to help solidify your work in character, plot, point of view,
getting mired in the middle, planting the seeds for the end and
more. We will critique your in-class writing in a constructive,
supportive environment that will help you keep moving towards
the finish line: a completed first draft! Be ready to submit 2-3
pages of your work in progress and a 1 page synopsis by Dec. 15 (or if registering after that date, submit within a week of registering),
not for critique, but to give the workshop leader a sense of the
project you're working on.
*Limited to just 10 participants.*
Workshops are filling up. Register today to secure your place.
"This workshop helped me grow as a writer,
teacher and person. I would encourage anyone needing inspiration to
attend whether they consider themselves a writer or not."
~ Jean, Participant in Michelle Cameron's novel
Cameron's debut historical novel, The Fruit of Her Hands: the
story of Shira of Ashkenaz, was published by Simon & Schuster's
Pocket Books in September 2009. Publisher's Weekly praised the
novel's "powerful immediacy" and Library Journal its "rich
details." Michelle's novel in verse, In the Shadow of the Globe, was
published by Lit Pot Press in late 2003. It received excellent
critical reviews, was named the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey's
2003-4 Winter Book Selection, and was dramatically performed in
several venues, including the Stella Adler School of the Arts and
the Winter Poetry & Prose Getaway. Michelle is also Co-Director of
Circle, which offers creative writing workshops for
children and adults. To read some of her work, visit
