Have you resolved to make 2024 the year you take yourself seriously as a writer? Let TWFest help you start off right!
Saturday, January 13, 2024 - all sessions virtual!
Start your writing year right with an inspiring day of resolution-setting. Live virtual sessions on freewriting, establishing healthy habits and habitats, submitting, querying agents, and working with editors will give you the tools to meet your writing goals—all while nurturing your spirit. And it comes with the flavor and mystique of New Orleans’ long literary history.
Write Every Day: Begin the day with unbridled writing. A New Orleans Writing Marathon will cure your writer’s block as you learn to freewrite with no critical voices or feedback—just pure joy. Correspondents from a live French Quarter writing marathon will check in, bringing us bursts of New Orleans.
Create Healthy Habits & an Inspiring Habitat: Peek into the workspaces of successful writers and hear about the strategies, habits, and organizational methods that help them structure their writing and their days.
Get Published: Learn what the editors of literary journals wish writers knew before submitting their work. Plus, get a front row seat to the editorial process, as editors critique the opening paragraphs of short stories live.
Find an Agent: Prepare yourself for the spotlight! Find out what you need to know—and do—before seeking representation, and get your questions answered by a panel of literary agents. Watch live as the agents dissect and discuss real query letters.
Form a Writing Community: End your day at our virtual happy hour. We'll share some of our favorite New Orleans cocktail recipes. Make one of your own while you network with your new writing buddies.
