How To Join A Workshop

Current Workshops

Workshops are initiated by a registered author on the blog, who agrees to become the moderator and monitor (Workshop Leader) for that group. Participants will sign up for a workshop based on criteria set up by the author in their original post. The Workshop Leader will select from the submissions the members of the subgroup and contact them directly with a password or a link to an outside host.

Check the sidebar for links, and subscribe to the blog feed to get updates on when workshops are starting.

Critique Workshops

The piece to be critiqued will be posted by the Workshop Leader, and members of the group will be given a fixed period of time, perhaps a week, within which to respond. If the members of the group wish to continue working together, the submission will pass to each member in turn and be posted by the Workshop Leader. The exact schedule and format for each workshop will be at the discretion of the Workshop Leader and the members of the group, although we suggest regular meetings to foster involvement and productivity.

Collaborative Workshops

The Workshop Leader will post the beginning of a story and then each member will be given a fixed amount of time to complete the next portion, e.g. 500 words. The Workshop Leader will be responsible for delegating assignments and editing the final draft. Although not required, we request that you consider publishing the results on the site. In any case, The Workshop Leader should decide in consultation with the group what the ultimate fate for any product will be before it has begun.

Other Workshops

Workshops may also be used to discuss and debate aspects the publishing business, the mechanics of writing, third-party writings, or anything else you can imagine. The workshop is a platform rather than a format. You will get out of it what you put in.
