Continuing Your Novel Workshop

Last year's info below. Registration for the 2015 Getaway will open by 8/15/2014.

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 workshop


Michelle 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 The Writers Circle, which offers creative writing workshops for children and adults. To read some of her work, visit
