Writers Workshop: Creative Organization for Writers, led by Stephanie Austin Edwards.
Presented in Partnership with the Bluffton Book Festival.
$25 Advance registration at or by phone at 843-379-7025.

Finding time for writing is a challenge for many, so let’s learn to make the most of limited time through being better organized for creativity. This class offers productivity advice and tools on how to get started and keep going for maximum creative flow and minimum technical frustration. Novelist and writing teacher and consultant Stephanie Austin Edwards will guide participants through making and maintaining a writing schedule; organizing documents and files for consistent easy access; formatting work for submission to editors, agents, and publishers; discussing book genres and manuscript lengths for publication; and sorting through the abundance of online help and software available. This workshop is designed to help burgeoning writers create and maintain a personal system of organization that then lets time for writing focus more impactfully on the creative act itself.
