Webinars & Workshops

 April 1-30, 2022


Cost:  $20

For one month, you will be able to peruse the proceedings of a recent Masters level workshop led by veteran literary agent and expert fiction instructor Donald Maass. Amplifying the Inner Journey focused on weaving the inner journey of the protagonist with plot points of the outer journey in order to drive the story forward. This workshop included five lessons over a two-week span. After each lesson, participants reviewed each other’s homework assignments, and then Donald Maass provided individual feedback to each participant.

For $20, you can peruse the online proceedings of this workshop throughout the month of April. This access includes not only Mr. Maass’s lessons, but also the homework and discussions among participants who learned by delving deep into their stories and have graciously allowed their work to be shared. You can go through the exercises yourself, and also learn from the feedback that Maass provided to the participants.

Donald Maass is president of the Donald Maas Literary Agency. He has published more than 16 novels as well as several authoritative books on writing, most notably, Writing the Breakout Novel (2001). He represents novelists in the SciFi, fantasy, crime, mystery, romance and thriller categories.
