Welcome to WordSmitten Writing Workshops, where professional writers meet other authors, book editors, and literary agents. WordSmitten, established in 1999, will be a 20-year old organization in 2019, with a history of helping writers reach their goals.
Our writing workshops are designed for new and emerging writers. We welcome writers who have a goal of dusting off a manuscript of fiction or non-fiction and with a goal of having a book professionally published.
In these workshops, you’ll work with a critique team, writers like you who rely on your suggestions and responses to improve dialogue, develop better characters, narrate the backstory, the plot and subplot, and to revise the writing.
If you want to discover how to complete your manuscript, write a professional query letter to a literary agent, and learn h0w to work with acquisition editors at major New York book publishing houses, register for the advanced workshops.
Each month, our WordSmitten workshops are held in Tampa Bay at our main office in St. Pete Beach, Florida and in Florida's North Bend area.

The workshops are held each month, at each location, and we invite beginning, intermediate, and advanced writers to register for these creative writing workshops. Our advanced session's writing students include professionals (attorneys, judges, doctors, engineers, educators–and a few philosophers) who have achieved a great deal in their own professions and who want to study the craft of writing.
For more information, call our office: 800 727-6214 Ext. 101 and leave a short message about your work (fiction or nonfiction), your name, your contact info (phone or email). We will schedule a time for a telephone conference to discuss these topics, below, to determine which workshop will work for you and your writing goals.
__Are you writing short stories, a novel, or a nonfiction work?
__What is your goal for your writing career? [Professional, Hobby, Family Legacy, Just Scribbling]
__Do you prefer group workshops ($15.00 per session) or private sessions ($125.00 for 1 hours)?
__What genre (category) do you prefer to write for [Literary, How-To, Romance, Thriller, SciFi]?
__How “raw” is your current work?
__What is the length of your manuscript [90,000 words, 300,000 words]?
We will schedule a convenient time for you to talk with our staff about your manuscript and your goals. Our group workshop's sessions provide each workshop member time to read five pages (double-spaced pages) during each monthly session.
