The From Concept to Publication: Gen Z & Millennial Writers workshop is designed to teach emerging writers how to author a short story, poem, or piece of fiction during the course of the three and a half hours. Topics of discussion include the myth of the muse in writing, how to utilize AI, writing an elevator pitch, and more, that will leaves guests with an in-depth understanding of how to publish a short work to jump start their creative career.
“It’s important to acknowledge that writers are the lifeblood of Saskatchewan and Canadian publishing companies. Editors, agents, publishers, bookstores, all exist because of the talents of millions of writers who make that a reality. There needs to be more resources for emerging writers,” Miguel Fenrich said.
“A chance at an in-depth, intimate workshop for emerging writers is few and far between. But all authors were emerging at some point, and the more support for them, the better writing we will have in the country.”
This workshop with Miguel Fenrich of Supernova Press, comes on the heels of a Saskbooks and Saskatchewan Writer’s Guild panel where Fenrich was able to speak about the company’s author-focused publishing model and the inclusion of several progressive plans for the press including the removal of submission guidelines, work to create accessible eBooks, and working with authors on a personal level.
“Supernova Press is and will always be dedicated to authentic communication with writers, this workshop just being one of those avenues for that communication,” Fenrich added.
