Writer's Digest is offering a brand-new writing event this year (we're
calling it the WD Editors' Intensive), hosted at our palatial estate
headquarters, in the Kenwood area of Cincinnati. Many people have
asked for this type of event, and we're limiting attendance to only
50, so it really is exclusive. Once we sell out, we'll start a waiting
list.

This event takes place on December 13-14. You'll get
information on marketing and publishing your work, plus receive a
one-on-one manuscript critique from a WD editor. Visit www.writersdigest.com/university for complete details.

WD editors participating include myself, as well as:
Chuck Sambuchino, Editor, Guide to Literary Agents
Alice Pope, Editor, Children’s Writer’s & Illustrator’s Market
Joe Stollenwerk, Director, WritersOnlineWorkshops.com

The
event features door prizes and an on-site bookstore with special
discounts and sales. Plus, you’ll take home freebies that include a
subscription to WritersMarket.com and a writer’s resource CD.
