The Center for Literature and Theatre at MDC Announces Schedule for Its Fall 2012 Miami Writers Institute

From November 14 through 16, 2012.

This fall, aspiring writers will have the opportunity to learn techniques and get publishing advice when The Center of Literature and Theatre @ Miami Dade College (MDC), formerly known as the Florida Center for the Literary Arts, presents its prestigious Miami Writers Institute from Wednesday, November 14 through Friday, November 16, during the Miami Book Fair International at the Wolfson Campus in downtown Miami. This year, the Writer’s Institute will offer a variety of workshops for both beginners and advanced writers, which include one- and three-day workshops with authors, as well as one-on-one manuscript consultations with an editor.

The comprehensive set of workshops will focus on topics such as dialogue, marketing for authors, turning ideas into words, as well as the business of publishing. All courses are taught by accomplished authors or publishing professionals with extensive teaching experience. The Writers Institute offers flexible packages; participants may attend just one workshop if their time is limited or take part of the full creative writing program for a deep discount.
