Are Writing Workshops Worth It?

Have you ever thought about attending a writing workshop?

Is a workshop worth the money? It all depends.

  • on your level of expertise – If you’re a beginning writer, you should definitely consider a workshop. They offer tips and hints and give you the basics for such things as making characters, handling plot twists, and developing a believable setting.
  • on your budget – some workshops have reasonable costs, particularly local writing groups or one-day workshops. If it’s going to take half your monthly paycheck, it’s probably not worth it to you.
  • on your self-confidence – even an established writer can use an infusion of confidence like the one you get from mingling with a room full of like-minded people and talking shop.
