Manuscripts & Mimosas - Hamilton, September 29 2019

Writing solo is great, but sometimes you need a second (or third or fourth or fifth) pair of eyes on your work. This small-group workshop is dedicated to manuscript review — bring in eight copies of a piece of writing and the group will provide honest, kind and productive feedback. We’ll also discuss publication, career planning and the writing life.

You’ll come away from this workshop with:

  • A game plan for making your piece of writing even stronger

  • A slight buzz from the best mimosas ever

  • New Hamilton writing friends

  • A smile on your face and a skip in your step
