Magical Words Critique Workshop


Are you a skilled writer, published or aspiring, looking for something “different” in a fiction workshop? ConGregate is teaming up with Magical Words to present a unique workshop experience during ConGregate 2014.

This intensive two-day seminar offers detailed, specific feedback on the first 2500 words of your manuscript by three published authors.
