Past Workshops

“Many thanks for your candidness in the seminar and for the business perspective you provided. I was treating the writing side of my life as just ‘art,’ and not the way I’ve diligently managed my corporate career. This seminar really helped me understand the work I must do to own my writing career.”—Frankie Mossman, grand-prize winner of the Writer’s Digest Popular Fiction Award for her short story, “The Bunker”
