ActFourWriters Workshop – What is it?

ACTFOURWRITERS Workshop

A Community of Novelists 

NOW IN ITS 7th YEAR,  A DIFFERENT KIND OF WRITING WORKSHOP PROVIDES YOU WITH A REVIEW OF YOUR FULL MANUSCRIPT BY FELLOW AUTHORS

 

After becoming friends in the same critique group for two consecutive years at the Big Sur Writing Workshop in the California redwoods, and after attending writing workshops throughout the United States, two aspiring novelists, D.S. Kane and D. J. Phinney envisioned a different breed of workshop, permitting peer review of not only the opening to one’s work, but a full-manuscript review, replicating a reader’s armchair experience.

Out of that vision, the Act Four novelists’ community came into being.

 

Act Four is an invitation-only workshop and retreat for fiction writers who have completed a first draft of at least one novel.  The intent is to provide a review of each participant’s query package and full manuscript, by three or four author peers, in a relaxed but intimate setting, shared by fellow writers in various stages of the publication process.
