Cultivate your craft at the Into the Springs Writers’ Workshop.
This summer’s version of the Into the Springs Writers’ Workshop will feature award-winning writer, author, and strategist Jane Friedman and science fiction and fantasy writer Jason Sanford.
The two will collaborate for a two-day writer’s intensive in Yellow Springs, Ohio on August 4-6, 2023.
In its second year at The Mills Park Hotel, a larger venue than in prior years, Into the Springs attendees will enjoy numerous opportunities for personal interactions with Ms. Friedman and Mr. Sanford.
- Writing topics Ms. Friedman will highlight include Publishing Trends; Fixing Mistakes on Author Websites; How Likely the First Lines of a Story Will Attract an Agent, Editor, or Reader; and How to Get a Book Traditionally or Independently Published.
In 2023, Jane was awarded Publishing Commentator of the Year by Digital Book World; her newsletter was awarded Media Outlet of the Year in 2020.
Mr. Sanford has been a four-time finalist for the Nebula Awards in various categories such as Best Novel and Best Short Story.
- His sessions will focus on Publishing Trends; Writing Tips to Advance a Story; How Likely the First Lines of a Story Will Attract an Agent, Editor, or Reader; The Short Story Market & Patreon.
The second and final night of the event, August 5, will include book sales by the two authors, followed by author signings, An Open Mic Reading Night will immediately follow. Volunteer participants will give five-minute readings from their work. If anyone is hesitant to do so, one of two actors will be glad to read the piece instead. A cash bar will be available.
In addition, for one hour on both mornings of the workshop, before the sessions begin, participants are invited over for coffee, tea and writing.
