WRITERS
SEMINAR

YOUR UNWRITTEN STORY IS WAITING TO BE TOLD

25 AUG - 13 SEPT, 2024

Budding authors need just the right tools

and encouragement in order to get their stories down on paper.

The inspiration may be there, the desire to create just within reach but for different challenging reasons the process has been hijacked and needs a little something in order to get it back on track.

 

The Writers Intensives are structured to

encourage writers on their journey from creation to publication. With the experienced hand of Mary DeMuth,

writers of all ages and stages can receive just what they need in the next steps of their craft.

 

Whether you need help to get started, courage to face editing or a whole dose of thick skin to get past the rejections sent out by agents, these seminars contains all the encouragement you need to continue onto the next stage of your journey.  Surrounded by others who are like minded in their desire to see their art on paper, you will join with a community who will help you accomplish your dream.
