Writers of the Future Workshop

Writers of the Future Workshop

The famous Writers of the Future Workshop, previously only provided to Contest winners, has been made available to anyone wanting to attend. The first workshop was taught by David Farland (Wolverton), Orson Scott Card, Kevin J. Anderson, Rebecca Moesta and the Winner Twins (Brittany & Brianna). We had a great turnout with attendees from 13 different states and from novice to established writers.

The Practice of Writing

I first heard about the Writers of the Future contest in 2012, when I went to a writers workshop and two women I met in the class told me about it.

Picture me: I’m nine years old, lying on my back beneath the skylight in my bedroom, rough carpet biting into my shoulders. I’m reading The Hobbit, enthralled. It’s summer. My mom is somewhere downstairs, yelling for me to get outside and play.

The Journey to Win

It was in the late summer of 2011 when I first found Illustrator of the Future Contest. I was in a great stress caused by not being able to find a decent place to live less than a month before my years-long master program started and trying to adapt to a whole new environment and American culture which was the first foreign country I had ever traveled to.
