Special Development Opportunities

All Day Workshops

Occasionally, the WFSC will run a workshop over an entire day or weekend. Obviously, these workshops are more expensive and usually require payment in advance. These extra-long workshops are time very well spent, so book in early as places are also limited.

Our manuscript assessments are limited to 10 places and Paula Boer requires manuscripts to be sent to her at least two weeks in advance, in order to provide personalised feedback and suggestions.
