I enjoyed Christine DeSmet's revision master class during Write By the Lake this summer and would highly recommend University of Wisconsin-Madison classes and conferences. I've also received a written critique from instructor Laurie Scheer who oversees the literary journal Midwest Prairie Review.This spring, Writers' Institute will bring literary agents into the mix so participants can attend workshops and pitch their books. It sounds like an exciting opportunity. Mark April 4-6, 2014 on your calendar.
