Virtual Teen Writing & Publishing Workshop

Rachel M. Anderson, Sigma’s Bookshelf’s Editor

Hundreds of manuscripts are submitted to publishers, but only a select few are published. During this special 6-week writing workshop, Sigma’s Bookshelf’s editor, Rachel M. Anderson, will provide an opportunity for teens to learn more about drafting their writing for publication. Sigma’s Bookshelf ( is a traditional book publishing company that exclusively publishes the work of teenage authors (ages 13-19). Authors are paid royalties for books that sell online, in stores, and at events. 

This workshop will cover how to bring your story to life, from plot and character development to outlining and starting a manuscript. It will also address common issues and mistakes in manuscripts and help students to improve their novel writing skills. Learn about editing, proofreading, and options for publishing. 

It is the instructor’s hope that students will come to the class with story ideas already in mind that can be worked on during the 6-week period. For those students who don’t have ideas yet, starter stories will be provided. This workshop will include both lectures and writing exercises. 

This class will be a LIVE class on Zoom where you can interact with the instructor and other students. Click HERE for instructions on how to set up an account.  1-2 business days after registration, you will receive a link with a Meeting ID and Password to enter the class!
