Story Structure for Novels, Novellas, Short Stories, Screenplays, and Teleplays

Three Tuesdays customized based on what you’re writing or interested in writing. Use the form below to put your name on the waiting list and I’ll respond as soon as I can.

The Manuscript Workshop

The Manuscript Workshop is designed for writers who have completed at least forty pages of a novel, novella, collection of short stories, memoir, screenplay or teleplay. We meet every Thursday from 7-10 p.m. from September to December or until January depending on the number of people who are accepted and enroll. Each week two writers submit pages from their manuscript and we discuss their work in detail. Sometimes members run into challenges and need to talk through character development, plot, structure, and more. This workshop’s format allows us to address the complexities of long-form projects as they arise. To ensure a good fit for you and the rest of the members, it’s best to begin with a phone discussion with me. Please email me at Rachel@phillywriters.com. In your email, tell me about your project, include your contact information, and the best times to reach you. I’ll contact you as soon as possible. Thank you.
