Contests & Events

NEW listing. Last year, our innovative Keystrokes Book Plan Workshop was very popular and we're pleased to announce that the workshop is back. This two-day seminar focuses on discipline, accountability and planning. Our experts are all published writers with day jobs and family obligations. And they still get at least one book written every year. If you'd like to learn their tricks and techniques, we'd love for you to join us. Our upcoming workshop will be held in Seattle, but we are planning future workshops in other cities.

Attendance will be limited, so check it out right away.
