Thank you to all who have applied to the summer Odyssey Writing Workshop! The deadline for the 2016 June-July Workshop has now passed. Applicants should receive word by May 1.
Writers, there is a variety of free writing resources available on the Odyssey Workshop site. Here are just a few:
–Salon (noun): 1. a place of business that specializes in beauty techniques and products 2. the room in a large house used for the reception and entertainment of guests 3. a gathering of writers, artists, and creative thinkers.
Director Jeanne Cavelos hosts an online writing salon every second Wednesday, from 7.30-8.30 Eastern time (the next one is this Wednesday, April 13). Check out more information, as well as the technical requirements, here, and make plans to join other writers and readers in an online discussion. No experience necessary other than a love for writing and a desire to discuss the craft.

Other free offerings: writing exercises and almost one hundred podcasts of authors’ and editors’ lectures from the Workshops, on a variety of subjects from plotting to worldbuilding to submitting and much more.
