The Santa Barbara Author-Mental Novel Workshop
creates an intimate and professional environment that combines private meetings with
small-group workshops, thus enabling aspiring authors to wisely approach the writing and
publication of their novel.
At the Santa Barbara event, aspiring authors will; 1) work one-on-one with top authors and savvy market professionals; 2) acquire the market skills and advanced story and narrative technique they must know to become published; 3) learn the necessary inside mechanics of the publishing business; and 4) leave the workshop with a detailed plan to work towards publication of their novel.e]
