PARIS AS CLASSROOM
WITH LAURIE FRANKEL
JULY 10 - 14

Join Lauren and Laurie for five days of invigorating, intensive, interactive writing with Paris as your classroom, featuring individualized attention from expert instructors and an immersive experience in the city of light.

AFTER THE NOVEL
WITH ANN GARVIN

Have you written a novel and aren't sure what to do with it? Do you find the whole publishing process overwhelming? Need a week to focus on getting your book out into the world, among experts and peers, in one of the most beautiful cities in the world? This workshop is for you.
Ann and Lauren will guide you through finding an agent, the differences between major publishers and independents, and the various ways you can market your work. We'll have Zoom visits with editors, agents, and best-selling novelists, and we'll workshop your novel plots and outlines.

I came away feeling like I knew more about being a writer and seeing a path toward to publishing than in all my years in my MFA program - Jayne Sosland, New York
Lauren's experience as a professor as well as best-selling author makes her the ideal instructor for this look inside the world of writing and publishing. She is approachable and funny, with real world experience and credibility.
