Writing and Selling Confessions
Confession magazines publish hundreds of short stories each year and editors are hungry for new talent. Published in True Story, True Confessions, True Romance, and similar periodicals, confessions represent an ideal genre for beginning short story writers to break into publication and for experienced writers to expand their sales.

Michael Bracken, author of more than 150 confessions, will provide an overview of the genre at the Brazos Writers workshop scheduled for March 8 in College Station. He will describe what makes confessions unique and will lead workshop participants
through the steps necessary to generate appropriate story ideas, develop ideas into believable plots, draft genre-appropriate scenes, and, finally, prepare manuscripts ready for submission to confession editors. Many of the techniques described in the workshop can be applied to writing in other genres.

“Writing and Selling Confessions” is a hands-on workshop and participants should come prepared to actively participate in the process. For more information on the workshop or Brazos Writers, go to
