From Concept to Execution: Make Your Novel Sing
October 12-14, 2007

From the people who bring us the annual Santa Barbara Writers Conference comes a series of focused events such as From Concept to Execution: Make Your Novel Sing. During a weekend of lectures and guided read and critique sessions, the essential elements of the novel are explored to help participants avoid common pitfalls in order to successfully take ideas from viable concept to publishable manuscript.

Participants submit a novel synopsis for review by the workshop leader one month in advance of the weekend intensive.
