The PWW Writing Weekend features Master Class in Novel-Writing and includes at no additional fee two Writing Craft Talks: WU282 The Alchemy of WritingWU283 Settings Make Your Story and WU291 PWW Panel Discussion: Navigating Today's Publishing World.

This is an intensive boot camp for the writerly brain. It is intended for writers who have begun a novel, are stuck in the middle or are at the end of a first draft and almost out of gas. We’ll meet you where you are to discuss various strategies. We’ll explore the fundamentals of fiction writing. How to create multidimensional characters who come to life on the page, how to build a vibrant, detail-rich world, and how to concoct a tight and coherent plot that grips, moves and surprises a reader. Along the way we’ll discuss how to do this with style - in other words with a voice. The top priority remains your needs, your goals, your questions. Writers can expect to walk away ready to work with all cylinders firing.

Need Help? Please submit 15 pages of your own work for peer and instructor feedback. Manuscripts should preferably be submitted to creativewriting@wice-paris.org by June 14.
