Whidbey Island Writers Workshops

This year, instead of hosting a conference, WIWA is offering a series of one-day workshops from January 16 to June 5. With seven workshops to choose from, there’s a little something for everyone.

As part of this series, I’m pleased to be leading a workshop on Saturday, January 16 from 10am-4pm, at the Coupeville Methodist Church in Coupeville WA. My workshop, “Writing Your Way: Your Path to Publication,” is a great introductory course for emerging authors.

Want to know more? This is the workshop description:

Writing Your Way: Your Path to Publication
What does it mean to be a writer? Why do we write? How do we find an audience for our work? From blank page to publication, this one-day workshop will help you set and reach your writing goals whether you write fiction, poetry, or non-fiction. Discussions and exercises will help you develop your voice, find an audience, and promote your work. We'll also talk about finding inspiration and how to get past the inevitable blank page. In addition to a notebook, participants are encouraged to bring samples of their writing, a query letter, a synopsis and/or proposal.

WIWA workshops are limited to 20 participants, so if you’re interested in participating be sure to visit the website for details. Registration closes next Thursday. Feel free to email me if you have any questions specific to my workshop.

I encourage you to check out the other great workshops WILA is offering this season. Visit for more information.

Whidbey Island Writers Association is also fundraising for next year’s $90,000 writing conference. If you’d like to help support this wonderful organization, visit this link for more info.
