Workshops & Submissions


A valuable part of Scriptoria is your participation in receiving and giving comments on works-in-progress. This is the actual workshop. 

Workshops are an excellent way to get helpful feedback on your writing. Your facilitator and classmates will talk about what works well and where they see growing edges. Each participant will have a turn.

(Note: Being nervous is human. You’ll be in good company.  See also this page about the experience. )

Workshop Assignments

Participants will be assigned to a workshop class based on genre, and the classes will run daily from 9 am to 11 am —except Monday, which starts at 9:30 am. 

Scriptoria faculty will lead the groups and will contact their assigned participants with precisely how they’ll run the workshop.
