Full Day Writing Development Workshop
J. D. Barker

8:30 am - 4:00 pm
12 Noon Break Included

Submit your novel in advance to have it critiqued by this number one international best selling author. Obviously not all submissions can be critiqued, but he will ask for volunteers, and choose a number of works at random if no one is willing.

One of the best ways to improve your writing is to have a mentor read and critique your work. Almost as good, and sometimes even better, is to hear the critique of other folks work and compare it to how you responded to the writing. 

This is a rare and not-to-be-missed opportunity to improve your craft by having a world renowned successful author share his expertise with you.
