Saturday, March 28, 2015, 10 - 5
Spend a lively two days exploring your book--and how to finally get it written and published. Hands-on workshop covers the ins and outs of book structuring in any genre (fiction, nonfiction, memoir) via storyboarding, writing in "islands," getting to know your ideal reader, premise statements, right-brain storyboards (image maps), and much more. Find out why past attendees have called this "the best writing workshop I've ever been to!" Find out more >
with the Loft Literary Center, Minneapolis
starts June 7
Intermediate and advanced fiction and memoir writers will gather to serve up their first pages, opening chapter, and random selections of their project, short or long, exposing not-quite-working-yet characters, dialogue, setting, for workshopping and fixing. The goal is to leave you with ah-ha! moments about what to do next and renewed excitement in your writing. Find out more >

Madeline Island Summer Writing Retreat
July 20-24 or July 27-31 or September 21-25, 2015
A week-long workshop/retreat to help you take your memoir, novel, or nonfiction book from idea to manuscript to publication. Daily classroom lessons on writing and book-structuring plus plenty of one-to-one work with Mary has made this event a summer favorite for many returning writers.
"How to bake a book: Start with a big love of words, add a generous helping of Mary Carroll Moore, mix with leavening from your peers, knead vigorously for twelve weeks, and voila! Your book has risen!"
