Kaz Conference Advanced Manuscript Boot Camp is 72 hours of supportive critique that will lead you to the final draft of your manuscript with max potential to publish.

Jump start the beginning of the end. You are so close to finishing the draft of your first book. Maybe it is complete, but no where near the initial vision you had of your project. You wrote your book word by word, in between your job, your kids, and countless other commitments. At the Advanced Manuscript Boot Camp you will receive two hours of feedback from up to six fellow authors in workshops led by Donna Kaz and Madge McKeithen. You will discover what is working in your pages, where your readers have questions, and what your peers want to see more of. These responses will spark fresh ideas about how you can strengthen your story and inspire you to return to your desk to complete and publish your book.


Featured Writers Include:

Donna Kaz and Madge McKeithen

Kaz Conference Writing Workshop

Kaz Conference Writing Workshop - the home of small, focused writing workshops on the east end of Long Island. Organized by author and activist Donna Kaz, the Kaz Conference offers two to four intensive seminars for writers each spring and fall: Advanced Manuscript Boot Camp (fiction/nonfiction); Creative Nonfiction Writers Conference; Writing Comedy Workshop for Women (all genres) and Script Lab (Plays/Screenplays). All workshops include developmental workshops as well as panels on the practical training of writers with input from editors, publicists, agents, social media experts and productivity coaches. Because reading and reviewing other work helps to strengthen ones own writing, peer review is a requirement of all sessions. Just 16 writers are accepted for each cohort. The Kaz Conference Writing Workshop is committed to diversity and our faculty reflect an all-encompassing and equal world. Our goal is to challenge, inspire and foster a writers community that continues beyond the workshops.
