Chapter One Workshop

Open discussion: Christine Schimpf will lead an informal exchange between authors about the kinds of problems we all share from Time Management to POV. This is also a time when we can share our best moments and what we enjoy the most about the writing journey.

Roundtable Discussion: Bring in Chapter One or a 1500 word scene from your WIP for general feedback and encouragement from the group. This is the safest and most supportive environment for writers to find out what we are doing that's great and what we might be missing on the page.

Heidi CullinanJoin WisRWA for a one day workshop featuring Heidi Cullinan as she presents Unlock Your A Game.

Unlock Your A Game is a full-day workshop that starts at square one and lays out a personalized plan for genre fiction careers of every stripe. Give us a few hours and we’ll revamp your promo mojo.

Romance publishing gets more competitive every day, and no two authors are alike. Bringing your A game is essential whether you’re a baffled newbie or a seasoned pro. Playing to win should be fun, but knowing the tricks and traps lets you bend the rules and stand out in a crowded field.

Play harder and smarter. Using simple game theory and practical exercises, we’ll help you plan your best next move. We’ll tackle every component of a winning romance platform: Brand, Presence, Market, and Project strategy. You’ll leave our class with the tools you need to tailor your career and unleash your own unique A game.

This class will tackle the foundations of an A game in its first three sections and then pull the components together in the fourth:

BRAND: Your piece in the game.

PRESENCE: The rules of engagement.

MARKET: The board on which you play.

PROJECT: A coherent A game played with the class.

Attendees will leave with all the components of a basic promo plan as well as four section handouts (with take-home worksheets) and several handy-dandy checklists so they can apply what we covered to their own work.
