Writing the Breakout Novel Workshop by Donald Maass

Maybe you’re a first-time novelist looking for practical guidance. Maybe you’ve already been published, but your latest effort is stuck in mid-list limbo. Whatever the case may be, author and literary agent Donald Maass can show you how to take your prose to the next level and write a breakout novel — one that rises out of obscurity and hits the best-seller lists.

Maass details the elements that all breakout novels share — regardless of genre — then shows you writing techniques that can make your own books stand out and succeed in a crowded marketplace.

For advanced fiction writers, or those who aspire to be!

“Any good literary agent can tell you when a manuscript isn’t working,” says Keith Cronin, author of ME AGAIN. “The really good agents can pinpoint exactly what isn’t working. But Donald Maass is the first one I’ve seen who has crafted a methodology for actually fixing the specific things that aren’t working. I’ve read countless how-to’s and attended many a literary conference, but have never had my mind blown the way it was at Donald’s workshop. Maass makes you push your writing to a level far beyond your own self-imposed limitations and comfort zones. It’s simply the best workshop I’ve ever attended.”

“RUN sign up for the Donald Maass workshop. I took his workshop in May and it was, hands down, the BEST workshop on writing I have ever taken in 25 years! LOVED IT! – Stef Ann Holm

“If you never attend another writing workshop in your life, you definitely should attend this one.” Georgie

“Chiming in to say: yes, his workshop really is THAT good. Seriously. . . Simply the best workhop I’ve ever attended.” – Keith Cronin
