  • Patterns that emerge on their own
  • Plot turns that come to you in dreams
  • Inevitable endings

"I went to Iceland to work with Writing Workshop — it was there the secret to landing essays and interviews was shared. I swear by Writing Workshop, but as a past participant I am under strict confidentiality to not share what we were taught. One must attend for themselves and learn secret handshakes etc." -Y. Conza
