The Manuscript Workshop is for writers who are already working on longer writing projects of fiction, non-fiction, screenplays, and stage plays. The group reads and responds to two manuscripts per week and support each other with the particular issues that arise out of working on a full-length manuscript. The leader provides written comments for each participant, meets with writers privately, and brings in additional resources as applicable.
