Writing Workshops

workgroup_2019.jpg

Nevermore Edits runs two weekly writing workshops in Tulsa, Oklahoma. They are free and open to anyone who wishes to attend, regardless of skill level, genre preferences, and current story progress.

What is a Writing Workshop?

Members critique a piece of writing submitted by other members using The Murder Method. This submission is provided to the group a week in advance to allow time for members to read and prepare.

 

What is The Murder Method?

The Murder Method is a five step process used to critique a piece of literature. It is optimized to provide a wide range of literary support, from grammatical to content analysis. Learn more about it here.

Can I just show up?

Walk-ins are always welcomed at either of our weekly workshops. If possible, do give staff a heads-up so they can have welcome materials available. You can reach out to us via Facebook, Twitter, or our Contact Page.

 

My story isn’t finished.

Sometimes a writer gets stuck and needs a little push. If you wish to submit the first pages/chapters of a story, you are welcome to do so. The feedback you are given during the critique might give you a helpful boost.

Do I have to critique everything?

Members are not required to critique submissions in order to attend the workshops. Members are also advised that they do not have to read any genre or subject matter that are uncomfortable with.

 

My story is… not PG.

We accept all genres, this includes those genres that lend themselves to graphic or explicit subject matter. Content warnings are noted and a member may choose to not read anything they feel uncomfortable with.

 
 
 

My story is really long.

We accept stories of all sizes, from flash to epic novel length. However, we do limit the amount that can be submitted at a time. Please see the submissions page for exact details, but this typically covers at least one chapter of a novel per submission.

How do I submit a piece?

Members submit a piece by emailing it to the applicable workshop. Please see the submissions page for details on where to send it and how to format it.

How long do I have to be a member to submit?

To become a member, you have to attend one workshop at either location. That’s it. You can submit for the next workshop that same night.
