If you are in the idea stage, we will spend the weekend brainstorming, freewriting, and doing writing exercises to help you begin. Or, perhaps you would like to take a weekend to brush up on the basics of a particular genre, especially poetry or memoir. The purpose is for you to design the workshop to be whatever you want or need it to be.
At least two weeks before our weekend, I would have you send me a manuscript, or, if it is a full-length work, we would agree on a reasonable portion, probably 7-12 pages plus a synopsis. You would give me some indication of what you wanted me to look for, whether developmental editing or proofreading/editing. We would work with your manuscript; talking and revising throughout the weekend.
The fee is $250; I will want half in advance at the time you send the manuscript, so you stay committed to your project.
The fee is $200 without a manuscript.
All meals are included. We eat well!
