NOVEL WRITING INTENSIVE RETREAT by Steven James & Robert Dugoni
I just had to let you all know about this excellent 3-day novel intensive retreat presented by bestselling authors Robert Dugoni and Steven James, who are both engaging, charismatic, knowledgeable presenters as well as talented authors. I've attended seminars by both of these authors at Thrillerfest, and both of them always speak to a packed room of attentive followers madly taking notes!
They're only accepting 10 participants, so register soon!
Have you always dreamed of having your novel published?
Are you looking for an expert critique of your first 50 pages? Do you want to know if your novel is ready to be submitted?
Award winning novelists and writing instructors Steven James and Robert Dugoni would like to help prepare your work for that next big step: submitting it to an agent or publisher. They will evaluate part of your manuscript for its strengths and weaknesses, have classroom teachings on how to better craft your story, and work with you in a small group setting to help prepare your novel for the next step in the publication process.
If you're ready for intensive instruction to improve your writing, and if you're serious about taking your manuscript to the next level, we hope you'll be able to join us in October for a time of in-depth teaching, growth, and encouragement.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
