ONLINE WRITING WORKSHOPS LAUNCHES WEB-BASED WORKSHOP FOR ALL ROMANCE AUTHORS
Online Writing Workshops, creators of the successful Online Writing Workshop for Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror, today announced the launch of its newest online writing workshop--this one for aspiring writers in the romance genre.
With half a million manuscripts written each year, and only a 1-in-400 chance of getting a first book published, aspiring writers need all the help they can get, and a seven-day-a-week, 24-hour-a-day online venue for peer review is a great resource. Testimonials indicate that OWW's workshops deliver on their promise of helping authors improve their writing.
While there are private or hobby workshops that operate via e-mail or the Web, Online Writing Workshops' professional, robust offerings are the first to maximize the potential of the Internet to provide aspiring writers with a venue in which to improve their writing, join a community of genre writers, and, perhaps, be discovered by editors or agents. Members retain all rights to their work and participate at whatever level they choose.
OWW's Web-based interface provides many advanced and unique features for both writers and reviewers, while remaining clear and easy to use. Features include instantaneous posting of submissions via the Web, aggregated reviews and ratings for each submission, and review history for each reviewer.
Hot new romance author Shannon McKenna (Behind Closed Doors) will be the first of the workshop's Resident Editors, romance professionals who contribute in-depth editorial reviews to the workshop. These coveted "Editors' Choice" reviews help both the author and other members improve their writing and reviewing skills.
Members get a free one-month trial period, after which annual membership costs $49. OWW's low annual fee sets the company's offering apart from other online opportunities for writers: Internet-based courses and workshop classes that can cost up to ten times as much for a weeks-long program.
For more information, please contact Online Writing Workshop founder and CEO Ellen Harris-Braun at firstname.lastname@example.org or 518/781-0465. Or visit the workshop at romance.onlinewritingworkshop.com.
