You submit a manuscript up to 7,500 words (short story or novel excerpt) before Jan 31, 2020, and are placed in a group with 2-4 other writers led by an experienced published author. You critique their stories, they critique yours in a friendly and constructive atmosphere. The workshops will be held during the afternoon of Sunday, March 8th, 2020.
