Free, Live-Recorded Workshops With Agents, Editors & Authors

Join us for fun, educational evenings with our faculty. Grab a pen, paper, and beverage of your choice (in a spillproof container, please) and follow along with the exercises, take notes, and grow your book and characters.

New Events Posted Monthly

Lynda Mullaly Hunt has dazzled hundreds of thousands of young readers with her riveting middle grade reads. Join us for a live reading of her newest book Shouting at the Rain, a chat about what makes a fabulous first page, and a Q&A.

Time permitting, we’ll also go in and critique first pages from the participants.

While Lynda writes with a focus for young readers, there’s a lot to learn here for all genres from this master writer.

Prizes-Fun-Free

In this free workshop with writing and theater teacher Chip Brewer, we’ll explore how your characters exist in the physical realm–how they take up space, how this shows us their role in the world, and how this relates to all of the millions of tiny moments that make them who they are.

Then we’ll move to their interiors–how their thoughts collide and personalities flourish–and how secrets, relationships, and emotions create your emotional landscape.

With wit, humor, and a lot of laughter, this workshop will explore how these seemingly small details make meaning in the greater world you’re creating.

Bring a pen, paper, and the beverage of your choice.

It’s time for #MSWL Manuscript Academy’s FREE Write-In Workshop!

Love back-to-school season? This event is for you.

Follow creative writing prompts, polish your work together, and meet your new writing BFFs–all from home. You’ll be able to see us live on video, but we’ll only be able to see you in text chat (aka pajamas welcome, and this is 100% introvert-friendly).

At our last write-in, writers shared their work, met new critique partners, and left feeling great about the industry.

We hope you’ll join us for a fun, uplifting evening with your new favorite community.

Join us for the very first Manuscript Academy Write-In! This FREE workshop will help you expand your characters, all while hanging out with your new publishing BFFs.

This will be like publishing TV in that you’ll be able to see and hear us, but we won’t be able to see you. You’ll have text chat on the side to ask us questions and (if you want to! Totally optional!) share your work.

No worries if you need to arrive late or watch this as a replay. Jump in at any time!
