THE WRITER’S HOTEL THE WRITER’S HOTEL MASTER CLASS IN FICTION & NONFICTION, JUNE 12-17, 2014: NEW YORK CITY

19 March 2014

The Writer’s Hotel & The New Guard literary review are hosting a Writer’s Workshop Master Class in Fiction & Nonfiction in the NYC Midtown area from June 12-17, 2014. Our workshops are getting full. If you are interested in being a part of this upcoming event, please contact us soon. All applications begin with an email inquiry to us at: TheWritersHotel@outlook.com

*** Please us at thewritershotel@outlook.com and begin your application process. **

Workshop Leaders are Scott WolvenElyssa East and Shanna McNair teaching Fiction, and Richard Hoffman, teaching Nonfiction.

The June, 2014 events of The Writer’s Hotel Master Class in Fiction & Nonfiction will be held between three writer’s hotels, The Algonquin HotelThe Library Hotel and The Bryant Park Hotel. Workshops, lectures and seminars will take place at The Library Hotel Writer’s Den and Poetry Garden and at The Bryant Park Hotel Terrace Loft and The Loft.

TWH editors Scott Wolven and Shanna McNair are working with writers right away upon acceptance to the Master Class, to polish manuscripts in anticipation of meeting agents on site in June. Scott and Shanna will also be working with accepted writers for a full month after the workshops in NYC. The sooner a writer has the chance to focus and begin work with TWH editors, the better. This offering is unique; writers are normally charged for TWH writing services. At TWH, we aim to help our fellow writers where possible, and this is our way to help bridge the gap between a writer’s desk and an agent’s desk.

The Master Class event is centered on craft and the publishing industry. Each writer will participate in an intensive workshop with a TWH instructor. There will be several lectures and seminars on craft in both Fiction and Nonfiction. Agents and editors will be in attendance for two seminar spots. Writers have the opportunity to interact with those agents and editors face-to-face, and to present their best work for consideration. Each writer will also have the chance to read their own original work at an NYC venue on one of our reading nights.

We are working in cooperation with the wonderful NYC nonprofit, Literary Manhattan, to give the Master Class its proper backdrop, and to honor writers and a city so steeped in literary history. There are literary walking tours and literary events on the docket, including a guided game of “Wink, Murder” at The Algonquin Hotel. Wink, Murder is a parlor game made famous by NYC’s so-called “Vicious Circle.” New York Distilling Company has generously donated bottles of Dorothy Parker Gin for this evening event.

Many Master Class seats have been reserved. The process is selective. There is no application fee; we’ll read your work, free of charge. Should you be accepted, you would be part of an exclusive group of writers. Our Master Class is very small, at only 44 writers total. A limited number of rooms have been reserved for attendees at The Bryant Park Hotel and at The Algonquin. **Rooms at The Library Hotel are now sold out. 

The Writer’s Hotel Master Class in Fiction & Nonfiction, 2014 is sponsored in part by The Kirby Family Foundation in cooperation with Creative Portland Corporation.
