Ventana Sierra Advanced Writing Workshop slideshow logo
  Help us help youth in need while deepening your craft, honing your skills and working toward your personal writing goals. Our stellar faculty includes three top writing coaches; six literary agents; two publishers; two editors; three college-level writing teachers; and a dozen award-winning, best-selling poets, memoirists, essayists and authors.

The Ventana Sierra Advanced Writing Workshop was created specifically to help writers of all genres reach a higher plateau. The craft breakouts are specifically designed to go deeper than those you might find elsewhere. Faculty-led group critique and optional one-on-one manuscript critiques are apex-level. State of the industry talks and agent/editor panels provide the latest information to help you decide the best way to reach your publishing goals. This year we add poetry and creative nonfiction/memoir tracks to last year's fiction. Plus, we'll show you how to polish your queries/synopsis/proposals/pitches, all leading up to a great agent speed dating session.

This event is the brainchild of ten-time NY Times bestselling author Ellen Hopkins, whose travels as a young adult author have brought her into contact with young people with big dreams but limited resources. Ellen founded Ventana Sierra, a 501(c)(3), to help youth-in-need reach for their dreams. Learn more about the nonprofit here: www.ventanasierra.org. All net proceeds from the Ventana Sierra Advanced Writing Workshop directly benefit Ventana Sierra’s nonprofit programs.
