If you’re not following Chestnut Review on Twitter, you’re missing out on Free Feedback Fridays! Follow and retweet our #freefeedbackfriday post on the first Friday of each month and you’ll enter a drawing to win a free critique on your submission. The next one is on Friday, September 2nd.
Celebrating 15 years, this event invites writers to sign up to be placed in a group. Once each group reaches 32 registrants, each receives a list of names and addresses. The goal is to write a poem a day on a postcard to the next person on the list after your own name and mail it to them. In return, you will receive a poem from each participant in your group. Writers are encouraged to start in advance of August 1 to allow time for the postcards to arrive, but it’s common to have some days go by with no card arriving and others with several cards waiting in the mailbox.
It’s back! The Writer’s Hotel (TWH) is hosting another virtual summer fiction workshop August 6 through August 28. The program centers on four weekend writing workshops and lectures, plus two full manuscript readings by TWH Editors, one-on-one agent pitching sessions, and attendee readings.
The deadline to apply is July 1, 2022 or until filled. This event is capped at 28 students. There is a $30 application fee.
Instead of an intense immersion programming, this year’s virtual event is operating on a new approach that allows them to take time and get to know one another and the TWH Directors. They will take time and give each writer even more attention than ever before.
During the Summer Workshop, writers will practice pitching manuscripts to TWH Editors Scott Wolven and Shanna McNair to hone their skills for a virtual Agent Pitching Session.
