David Farland's Writer's Mastery Camp

Start National Novel Writing Month out right in this workshop exclusively for those who would rather be dead than unread!

This is a whole new approach to Dave’s popular writing camp, where we will focus much more heavily on writing craft than ever before. For two days, we will have lectures followed by writing exercises throughout the day, with evenings left open for "free writing."

During the workshop, instruction and exercises will cover such topics as:

  • Six ways to create engaging openings.
  • Putting characters into conflict.
  • Using themes to resonate with your reader.
  • Using plotting tools.
  • Using tone, voice, and your own personal style.
  • The revision process.

We will have at least ten assignments over the course of the class, and Dave will review each assignment and offer critiques.

During lunch and dinners, authors will be able to set up appointments to dine with David in order to talk about specific concerns that they have with their writing, or to plan their careers.

Note to Writer's Mastery Camp Participants: You must bring a laptop computer with you. If you don’t own one, then borrow, rent, or buy one.

While the goal for this workshop is to allow the writer to have fun, to get inspired, to work in an intellectually rich and emotionally fulfilling environment, this will be David’s most intensive class ever!

Refund Policy for Writing Workshops

At times, people need to cancel from workshops due to circumstances beyond their control. However, when this happens, it incurs certain administrative costs. Furthermore, if a student withdraws too close to the workshop, we may have seats that cannot be sold—seats that have been held for months—and this does real damage to our ability to continue these services.

Therefore, if a student needs to back out from any workshop, the student may opt to apply all of the funds to a future workshop,


The student may sell membership to another writer


If the student needs to withdraw in a timely fashion (60 days before the workshop) funds will be returned minus $25 for administrative costs.

If the student needs to withdraw within 30-60 days of the workshop, we will try to sell that student’s seat and still refund all monies, less $25 for administrative costs.

If the student needs to withdraw within 30 days of a workshop, in most cases it becomes too late to open a slot for another student, due to the time that is required for students to prepare. In these cases, only 50% of the funds will be returned.
