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 Roberta Clipper
Visions and Revision: Fiction & Creative Nonfiction
What will keep an editor reading your writing? How can you make it stand
out? This workshop will help you focus and polish your prose, whether
creative nonfiction or fiction. Feedback and encouragement will help
make your writing stronger, and guided revising will ensure it rings
true to your vision. Be ready to submit 2-5 pages on which you need
feedback by Dec. 15 (or if registering after that date, submit within a week of registering). This workshop will focus intensely on revising and
you will benefit more by submitting a work in progress rather than a
piece that is nearly complete. The workshop leader and participants will
read each submission before the Getaway.
*Limited to just 8 participants.*
"I wanted to thank you for all of the insights and encouragement I
received from attending last January. Attached is a preview of the
results. The book will be available to the public later this week."
