KAZ CONFERENCE WRITING WORKSHOP has moved to a VIRTUAL format - all workshops, conference, intensives are now offered on line via ZOOM at deeply discounted fees.

THE KEEP WRITING VIRTUAL NONFICTION WRITERS WORKSHOP COHORT NOW FORMING FOR FALL 2020 via ZOOM. Applications are now being accepted for the Kaz Conference Keep Writing Virtual Nonfiction Cohort OCTOBER 7th through NOVEMBER 11th (6 weeks) meeting every Wednesday from 2 to 4PM EST. Are you a nonfiction writer working on a memoir? For 6 weeks this fall just 6-8 writers will gather via ZOOM -- at each workshop two to three writers will workshop 10 to 20 pages of a work of creative nonfiction/memoir. The sessions include discussions on the business of being a writer i.e. publishing, legal issues, agents and self promotion. The Kaz Conference was founded by award winning author Donna Kaz (UN/MASKED, Memoirs of a Guerrilla Girl) and is committed to diversity. Our faculty and cohorts reflect an all-encompassing and equal world and our goal is to challenge, inspire and foster a writers community that continues beyond the workshop because the stories we tell become the world we live in. In this workshop 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 work. Virtual workshop tuition: $325 for all 6 weeks - includes two reviews of your writing samples from Donna Kaz and your cohort.

Kaz Conference Writing Workshop

Kaz Conference Writing Workshop is the home of small, focused writing cohorts in nonfiction, playwriting/screenwriting, poetry and fiction. We also host virtual conferences, bootcamps and intensives on the business of being a writer. All our workshops are virtual and take place via ZOOM. The Kaz Conference Writing Workshop is organized by award winning author and activist Donna Kaz ("UN/MASKED, Memoirs of a Guerrilla Girl On Tour;" "Push/Pushback, 9 Steps to Make a Difference with Activism and Art.") There are two to four cohorts and/or intensives each month including the Advanced Manuscript Boot Camp (fiction/nonfiction); Creative Nonfiction Writers Workshop and Conference; Writing Comedy Intensive for Women (all genres); Playwriting Intensive for Women (Plays/Screenplays) and ONE to ONE Road to Publishing Intensive (all genres). All cohorts are small (6-8) and in each workshop writers receive feedback every other week on submissions. Talks on the practical training of writers are included in every workshop. Because reading and reviewing other work helps to strengthen ones own writing, peer review is a requirement of all sessions. 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 because the stories we tell become the world we live in. UPCOMING: CREATIVE NONFICTION WRITERS WORKSHOP (FALL 2020); COMEDY WRITING FOR WOMEN INTENSIVE (FALL 2020) ; PLAYWRITING INTENSIVE FOR WOMEN (FALL 2020); VIRTUAL NONFICTION WRITERS CONFERENCE - 2021.
