FIND YOUR MEMOIR COHORT - NOW FORMING FOR FALL 2020 via ZOOM. Applications are now being accepted for the Kaz Conference Keep Writing Virtual Nonfiction Cohort February 10 - March 17, 2021 (6weeks) meeting Wednesdays from 2 to 4PM EST. Are you a nonfiction writer working on a memoir? For one month this winter just 6-8 writers will gather via ZOOM -- at each workshop two writers will workshop 10 to 20 pages of a work of creative nonfiction/memoir. The sessions include discussions on the business of being a writer i.e. publishing, legal issues, agents and self promotion. The Kaz Conference was founded by award winning author Donna Kaz (UN/MASKED, Memoirs of a Guerrilla Girl) and is committed to diversity. Our faculty and cohorts reflect an all-encompassing and equal world and our goal is to challenge, inspire and foster a writers community that continues beyond the workshop because the stories we tell become the world we live in. In this workshop you will discover what is working in your pages, where your readers have questions, and what your peers want to see more of. These responses will spark fresh ideas about how you can strengthen your story and inspire you to return to your desk to complete and publish your work. Virtual workshop tuition: $350 for 6 weeks - includes two reviews of your writing samples from Donna Kaz and your cohort.
