The Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance (MWPA) is excited to announce two online workshops happening this summer.

On Saturday, August 3, Penguin Random House author Ryan Britt will lead “Better, Shorter, Sharper”, a personal essay workshop, on an online platform. From the comfort of their own homes, participants will learn about a variety of topics, from topic selection to timesaving editing techniques, with the end goal of creating better, sharper essays.

On Saturday, August 24, Jennifer Jacobson, three-time winner of the Lupine Award, will teach “Seize the Reader”, an online workshop focused around Middle Grade/YA Novels. Participants will explore ways of crafting stories that resonate with a reader long after they have finished the book.

The MWPA is proud to offer one full scholarship for each workshop. Advance Registration is required to attend.
