Featuring three separate workshop intensives, this conference will act as your guided tour to writing and finishing your novel!
• • • • •
Each intensive comes with multiple video lessons and writing prompts designed to get your momentum going.
Unlike in-person retreats that involve travel and taking time away from your regular schedule, Writer Igniter Con is delivered entirely online and is designed to fit around your schedule.
Writer Igniter Con features over 25 on-demand videos that you will have access to beginning 12:00pm ET on October 31 and ending at 11:59pm ET on November 30. You can watch and re-watch the videos as many times as you would like for the 31 days of the event.
Major conferences—both online and in person—often include every topic imaginable. While this might seem like a great value, you can also end up sitting through sessions you just don't need.
Writer Igniter Con focuses on the three fundamental aspects of the craft: character, world building, and plot. Plus, the writing exercises will help you put the techniques into action.
Every story starts with a character. In this intensive, you will…
• Discover your protagonist’s traits and deepest desires
• Dive into the secondary characters who surround them
• Learn a new way to evaluate how your characters are
portrayed on the page
World building is much more than crafting descriptive settings. In this intensive, you will…• Explore the Ecological Systems Theory of world building
• See how to create conflict and tension using your world building
All stories follow a narrative arc. In this intensive, you will...
• Review how three acts with two pivot points combine to
create one story structure
• Master the necessary elements of a good beginning, middle, and end
• Determine what type of outlining technique is right for
keeping track of your story and plot
Gabriela Pereira—Instigator and Founder of DIY MFA—created this event especially for the word nerd community. During this month-long program, she will share her years of knowledge and experience, as well as concrete strategies to help you finish that novel of your dreams! Throughout these intensive workshops, she'll also give you focused assignments so you can make major progress toward your goal.MEET THE INSTRUCTOR
Most writing conferences, retreats, and courses cost hundreds of dollars, but we wanted Writer Igniter Con to be accessible to as many writers as possible. This is why we’ve decided to bundle all three and offer the entire series of workshops for the same price—just $49 total! This is an exclusive rate and we most likely won't offer it again.
I got so much done! I practically tripled my word count. It looks like I'm going to reach [my goal] in a timely manner.
I have officially started writing my first novel. I'm going to aim for NaNoWriMo and to have a first draft by the end of the year!
The Word Sprint was just great! I loved the short motivational videos, and I got a great chunk of writing and editing done. Thank you!
I knocked out another 648 words for a total of 1,193, and over 2,200 for the weekend! I'm feeling pretty satisfied.
