We've noticed that summer can be a tricky time of year for writers. It's when so many of you think you'll finish (or start) a novel, but vacations, family, friends and even that good old day job tend to take up more time than anticipated.
Let ManuFixed serve as your guide and hold you to your goals!
Start your next project or revise a current one this summer with help from Sam and Cristina. Our BOOK CAMP will be held online for four weeks and will include videos, discussions, activities and check-ins. For our campers, archery will involve scene targets. We'll word sprint and throw a saddle on your book's structure. You add the s'mores by a campfire!
The cost of our 4-week camp is $80. We wanted to make this experience affordable to writers and to encourage you to join us no matter where you are in your process. This fee includes developmental edits of 20 pages of your writing at any point during the four weeks. We hope you'll feel inspired to write even more!
Q: Where is ManuFixed Book Camp?
A: Wherever you are, as long you have access to the internet. Each week, we will add new videos discussing our plan for the next few days and helpful hints to help you challenge yourself and your work.
Q: Why should I go to ManuFixed Book Camp?
A: Because you're a writer and you want to commit to your writing goals this summer. You'll have the opportunity to work with professional editors and to meet other writers. And we promise to keep it fun.
Q: When is ManuFixed Book Camp?
A: June 1-30, 2018. At this point, we don't have any other camps scheduled. We will limit entrance, so it's possible we will need (and want!) to create another session.
Q: How much does Book Camp cost?
A: $80 for the full four weeks includes access to all of our materials, videos, activities and discussions, as well as developmental edits of 20 pages of your writing. If you register by April 1, we will also edit your query letter.
Q: Do I have to work on a book?
A: Absolutely not. We specialize in editing plays and screenplays, as well as books. You can even use camp to journal. There's only one right way to do this: write!
Cristina Pippa has been teaching creative writing at a performing arts camp in Colorado for years. She can toast a marshmallow to golden perfection.
Samantha Bohrman loves arts and crafts almost as much as she loves editing and working with writers!
