Pack up your manuscript and bring into the shop for a can-do one-day story intervention with Tex Thompson! September 8 & 9.


“Write a novel,” they said. “It’ll be fun,” they said.
Well, if it’s stopped being fun – or if you’ve just been staring at the same slumping word-heap for way too long now – don’t give up! Pack up your manuscript and bring it into the shop for a hands-on, can-do one-day story intervention. Together, we’ll load up your toolbox with problem-solving techniques for novelists’ most frequent creative conundrums and top it all off with a personal one-on-one consultation to address your specific story issues.
You can send in fifty pages of anything – chapters, outline, synopsis, etc. – free with your registration, or upgrade* for a thorough read-and-review of your entire manuscript.
Choose either the first-draft workshop or the revisions seminar and get ready to go from despair to fanfare!

About Tex Thompson: Arianne “Tex” Thompson is a ‘rural fantasy’ author, egregiously enthusiastic speaker, and professional ruckus-raiser. She is the author of the Children of the Drought, an epic fantasy Western trilogy from Solaris, as well as an instructor for the Writers Path at SMU and ‘chief instigator’ of WORD – Writers Organizations ‘Round Dallas. Now she’s blazing a trail through writers conferences, workshops, and fan conventions around the country – as an endlessly energetic, catastrophically cheerful one-woman stampede.
