Finding Your Voice: Writing Workshop

Hey Y'all,
I'm putting on a writing workshop May 29 -31st at the beautiful Clear Spring Studio in South Austin. It's been a long while since I did a workshop but I've had several requests, so here you go. Class size is very limited, so please contact me asap if you're interested. You can make a deposit and then payments if you're on a budget, no problem. Here's the info:

This 14-Hour Weekend Workshop Includes:
Friday Evening Lecture: State of the Art-- Getting Published in 2009
Saturday: lecture, assignments, intensive writing time Noon til 6
Sunday: Q & A, assignment, intensive writing, sharing Noon til 6
Group Dinner Sunday Evening

This workshop is designed to offer insight into the current state of publishing-- what with all the ways the Internet has changed the face of things. It is for both new and longtime writers, those looking for a public place for their voice as well as those looking to jump start journaling and writing for self.

Spike Gillespie has twenty-six years of experience as a published writer and editor. She's the author of four published books and the co-editor of an anthology. Her fifth book comes out Fall '09 and she's working on her sixth book now. So, really, she's got the joy and hell of the whole process down pat.

The workshop cost is $200. Email spike@spikeg.com for more info and to sign up.

This sounds really wonderful. I am considering it, but the cost is out of my league right now. After reading your article on picking up hitchhikers, I wish that I could write like you.

Hey Wendy,
Thanks for the good words. There will be more workshops so maybe one of these days we'll meet up.
