Becoming Madame will be attending this year’s Paris Writer’s Workshop!

Sponsored by WICE, one of the oldest Anglophone organizations in Paris, the Paris Writer’s Workshop (PWW) is a week (June 24–29, 2012) “rich in opportunities to fine-tune your writing with the outstanding faculty, work in an intensive and friendly environment, stay current on literary trends (such as self-publishing, eBooks, and the use of blogs and social media), receive step-by-step information on how to get published, meet literary agents, become a member of the PWW community, and enjoy summer in the City of Light!”

The PWW combines morning workshops with panels and lectures in the afternoons. There will also be a literary dinner on the last evening, meetings with literary agents and publishers as well as readings and discussion with various authors and literary industry experts.

About WICE: “For more than 33 years, the non-profit association has been offering cultural and educational programs to the international and expat community in Paris. Day-to-day operations are supported by a dedicated group of volunteers, diverse in age and nationality.

WICE was founded in 1978 by a small group of expats to meet the intellectual,
professional, and self-development needs of English-speaking community of Paris.
Originally affiliated with the American University of Paris, WICE grew quickly,
welcoming men and women including permanent residents and short-term visitors
to Paris. In the late 1990s, WICE’s membership grew to 900 men and women, and the curriculum offered nearly 300 classes and events.”
