What do we do at WOW 2?

This week is about deepening your craft. Who are you as a writer? You’ve got the core skills, now how do you put them to best use? How do you create the kinds of characters someone begs for more of? How do you develop your authentic voice so you stand out from the crowd? How do you create better, more dynamic conflict so your reader stays up till the wee hours because they have to see what happens next?

We discuss these things and more throughout the week, and each morning is dedicated to a topic that will help you become an even better writer. During the day, it’s all about your writing, and in the evening, it’s feedback time. We provide the place, the food, the company, and the laughter. You just need to be there and be willing to put pen to paper.
