About our Fiction Masterclass: “Your Character’s Character”

If you’re working on a story and it’s going nowhere, the problem may lie with your protagonist, and not with your plot. In this generative session, join author, editor, and The Writer columnist Yi Shun Lai for a deep dive into your characters’ personalities, their motives, and their backstories – and learn how those can drive your plot in true page-turning fashion.

About our 10-page manuscript critique service

Submit a 10-page fiction or nonfiction manuscript to receive a written critique from one of our faculty members. We’ll include in-depth feedback on what’s working well in your draft and what perhaps needs some improvement. All participants will receive their critique onsite in their conference registration packet.

Note: If a critique is not submitted by the given deadline, we cannot guarantee your critique will be completed in time for the event.
