Charlotte Robin Cook

Charlotte Robin Cook, MFA, is a former publisher and acquisition editor, now a full time story editor and workshop facilitator. She’s participated in the development of some 300 writers and some eighty books, many of them award-winning and successful. This next year should see six of her writing clients and workshop participants find agents and publishers. Among her clients and students have been screenwriters-turned-novelists, for which she cowrote Adapting Sideways: How to Turn Your Screenplay into a Publishable Novel (excerpted in Creative Screenwriting Magazine).

Charlotte has been a popular presenter at numerous writer groups and conferences, among them California Writers Club, Willamette, Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers, South Carolina Writers Workshop and the San Francisco Writers Conference. Her several Writer’s Digest Tutorials included “8 Things First-Time Novelists Need to Avoid,” voted most popular tutorial of 2012. She’s also the head fiction judge for the Ippy or Indie awards (aka the International Next Generation Indie Book Awards). She’s also a published writer who has studied with Pam Houston, Molly Giles, Jervey Tervalon, Lynn Freed, and playwright Carol Lashof, among others.

Those are some of her credentials. But Charlotte prefers to focus on the development of polished writing and appropriate craft in writers. Her workshops and client work focus on the learning curve from compelling story, engaging characters, evocative world to publishable work, work that readers find irresistible, fresh and memorable. Her favorite personal quote is: "Writers bring a full mind to an empty page while readers bring an empty mind to a full page.” She enjoys participating in the full realization of writers as much as their writing.
