Both versions of MWW allow us to offer plenty of instruction, networking, and the sense of community that makes MWW so special. Come to Muncie and join us for our 50th writers’ conference or join us virtually wherever you’re located.

MWW Online Seminar with Jane Friedman

Getting Published Masterclass: Traditional, Self, Hybrid, and More

Saturday, March 11, 2023

Session One: 10:30 am to 12:00 pm EST

Session Two:1:30 pm to 3:00 pm EST

Cost: $99

In this masterclass with publishing industry expert Jane Friedman, you’ll learn not just the foundational principles of getting a book published, but gain up-to-date insight into the changing landscape of the publishing industry, and how you can navigate your own path toward success. You’ll discover what it takes to capture the attention of a New York publisher or literary agent (whether you write fiction or nonfiction) and how to determine if self-publishing, hybrid publishing or online-only options (e.g., Substack, Vella, Wattpad) is the most appropriate path for your next project.

MWW Writing Services connects writers to trained experts in the field to help them to improve their writing with relationship-based, craft-centered guidance. The Manuscript Evaluation opportunity during our summer workshops has been so popular over the years that we wanted to develop this online connection.

MWW Writing Services will help writers in fiction genres (general, literary, mystery, thrillers, young adult, middle grade, women’s, etc.), and nonfiction, as well as query letters and synopses.

We are proud of our ability to provide these important services to writers at an affordable cost. By focusing on its strengths, its attendees, and the ongoing concerns of what writers need, Midwest Writers Workshop strives to develop significant programs and opportunities, while maintaining a sense of professionalism and dedication to quality.
