Writing Workshops for Young Adults

The Crazy 8 Press Team (Robert Greenberger, Aaron Rosenberg, Peter David, Russ Colchamiro, Michael Jan Friedman, Glenn Hauman) have developed short (1-hour) writing workshops aimed specifically at teenage aspiring writers. These workshops are open to all teens (12-19 years of age).

This year we will have two of these workshops, one on Saturday and one on Sunday. The topics will be Plotting and Characterization. Further details will be announced soon.

Annual Shore Leave All-Kinds-of-Writing Workshop

with Howard Weinstein, Bob Greenberger, Dave Galanter, Bob Jones & Kelly Meding

Our writing workshop team has about a century's worth of professional editing and writing experience between them! They'll be sharing the fruits and frustrations of the writing life with all interested writers at their 2-hour workshop on Saturday. The basics of good writing and story-telling apply to many media, so they'll cover scripts, novels, short stories, comics -- and non-fiction, too. No matter your age or experience, if you want to be a writer -- or be a better writer -- here's your chance to ask questions and chat about the craft and business of writing for fun and profit! (Pre- registration not required; the workshop is free.)
