Writing and Publishing Workshop Coming to Seaside Institute



 Writers looking for both inspiration and motivation, not to mention a relaxing setting in a beautiful oceanside community, can have it all when they register for “Write Your Novel and Publish It!” The multi-day workshop is taught by award-winning author Victor DiGenti, April 24 – 26, at the Seaside Institute’s Academic Village, near Destin, Florida.
The classes provide writers with the tools needed to craft their own novel, plus shows them how to take the next step toward getting published and marketing their book. DiGenti, who wrote the award-winning adventure/fantasy Windrusher trilogy before adopting the Parker Francis pen name and penning the Quint Mitchell Mystery series, said, “The workshop packs a year’s worth of learning into three half-day sessions, leaving participants with ample time to enjoy the beautiful Seaside area, or just relax on the world class beaches.”
The workshop is filled with group and individual exercises designed to help hone the novelist’s craft. The final day covers the burgeoning field of independent publishing, and the essentials of marketing books.
The tuition fee is $275 per person and includes a comprehensive workbook and a final day celebratory gathering to hear the work of each writer.
