Virtuous Con launches a Summer Writing Workshop Series in partnership with Amazon KDP

Virtuous Con have announced they have partnered with Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing on a special project for writers called The Virtuous Con Summer Writing Workshop Series. This unique virtual program expands on the success of the Virtuous Con 2021 Juneteenth Master Class Series and their 2022 virtual convention in February. For this summer program, founder and award-winning writer Cerece Rennie Murphy assembled nine prominent African-American writers in fiction, comics, screenwriting, and film to offer aspiring writers an intimate learning experience to challenge creators to create with courage.

The virtual series will feature eight live weekly 2-hour workshops featuring award-winning and best-selling authors, Beverly Jenkins, L. Penelope, Ines Johnson, and Minister Faust, ground-breaking comic creators Greg Burnham, Regine Sawyer, and Micheline Hess, and pioneer novelists and screenwriters Tananarive Due and Steven Barnes.

Jenkins, both a Romance Writers of America Nora Roberts Lifetime Achievement Award winner and an NAACP Image Award in Literature nominee, will launch the series on July 6th with “Plot Characters and Setting for Fiction Writers.”

The Virtuous Con Summer Writing Workshop Series runs from July 6, 2022, to August 3rd, 2022, and tickets are available through their website. A special discount is available for Virtuous Con Patreon subscribers.
