A couple of years back I asked if there have ever been an online workshop or writers conference. I didn’t dig deeper to see if they exist or how to start one. Fast forward to 2012 Media Bistro will be hosting the first online literary festival and writing workshop July 16th thru August 1st.
Susan Orlean, author of Rin Tin Tin will be the keynote speaker for this 3 week festival. Interactions with other writers, editors, and agents will be at your fingertips. Think about the multiple connects you can get from this without hopping on a plane or spending a lot of money on gas or airfare. The cost to participate is $425 and it includes weekly how-to demonstrations, peer group interactions, one on one feedback from authors, summer reading group and customer service from Media Bistro. Workshops such as
- query letter writing,
- how to research historical fiction,
- nailing the first pages of your novel
are also a part of the festival.
