This workshop is designed to equip writers who have finished at least one full draft of their manuscript with the practical and psychological skills required to navigate the long and windy path to reach their writing goals. The development phase can be challenging and frustrating; it is likely to take longer than you thought. But it is also incredibly rewarding. If you are committed to becoming a writer, you can't avoid it.


This workshop will be presented online. Detailed information on participation will be provided.

  • 5 hours of guidance, information, and directed teaching 
  • Writing exercises,  to help hone your craft and reinforce your new skills
  • An extended, fully interactive session for targetted guidance and exercises, questions, clarifications, and practice and skills extension

Schedule for the Day:

  • 10 - 11:15am: First webinar with Laurel Cohn
  • 11:45am - 1pm: Second webinar with Laurel Cohn
  • 1:45 - 4pm: An interactive webinar session with exercises and Q&A, practice and discussion with Laurel.
