If you’re ready to dig in to craft, you should take a look at the workshops that will be presented at this year’s Sirens.
Workshops are hands-on explorations of a topic. This category can include writing workshops, practice in strategies for teaching and learning, craft-based presentations, and other hands-on and highly interactive topics. Please note that the seating in workshop rooms is very limited to allow the presenters the maximum hands-on teaching time for each attendee, as well as to control costs that the presenters incur if they provide materials. Likewise, this means that if you’re attending a workshop, you get to ask questions and get instruction in a small group. Attending a workshop is a great way to get your creative gears turning!
Five Ways to Build and Break a World
Infiltrate the Query Pile
Unpacking Character: Creating Dimensional Characters with Distinctive Voices That Live beyond the Page
Writing Women with Agency (workshop and roundtable discussion)
If you would like to support both Sirens and our presenters, we invite you to sponsor these (and other) presentations. The cost is $35 per presentation, and we will include your name next to your chosen topic on the accepted programming page. We’ll also list your sponsorship in our program book for this year’s event if we receive your sponsorship by August 21, 2015.
