Big Sur Children’s and Young Adults Writing Workshop

There are still a few spots left at the Big Sur Children’s and Young Adults Writing Workshop to be held on Dec. 2-3, 2011.

The workshop is sponsored by the Henry Miller Memorial Library, a non-profit 501 (c) (3) bookstore and art space who has hosted Philip Glass, Laurie Anderson, theater, poetry, art, and so much more; and the Andrea Brown Literary Agency.

Each year we host dozens of aspiring writers and illustrators across two illuminating days here in the redwoods. The workshops are small - ratio of faculty to writers is five to one or better - and the faculty consists of authors, publishers, editors, and literary agents. To make things slightly more bearable, I’ve included some helpful links:

  • The workshop home page. It has all the information you’ll need, including the editors, agents, and authors who'll be attending, submission guidelines, and logistics.
  • Our Facebook page, which includes works of workshop alumni and faculty members, as well as news and other information.
  • Success stories and thank-you notes from alumni, some of whom found a publisher at previous workshops, all of whom found the workshop to be inspirational and unforgettable.
