  • Event :: The Writer’s Hotel 2022 Virtual Summer Fiction Workshop

    It’s back! The Writer’s Hotel (TWH) is hosting another virtual summer fiction workshop August 6 through August 28. The program centers on four weekend writing workshops and lectures, plus two full manuscript readings by TWH Editors, one-on-one agent pitching sessions, and attendee readings.

    The deadline to apply is July 1, 2022 or until filled. This event is capped at 28 students. There is a $30 application fee.

    Instead of an intense immersion programming, this year’s virtual event is operating on a new approach that allows them to take time and get to know one another and the TWH Directors. They will take time and give each writer even more attention than ever before.

    During the Summer Workshop, writers will practice pitching manuscripts to TWH Editors Scott Wolven and Shanna McNair to hone their skills for a virtual Agent Pitching Session.
