Well, my cheapass calendar did not inform me that the original date I picked for my next writing workshop is, in fact, Labor Day weekend. A lot of interested folks became uninterested upon hearing this. So, after some consideration, I've changed the date of my next workshop. This one, too, falls on the weekend of a holiday-- Halloween-- but we'll have you out in plenty of time to go trick-or-treating. I would really appreciate you helping me spread the word on this. Below is the updated info.
Time for another workshop. This one will be October 30th - November 1st at the lovely Griffin School in Hyde Park. Class size is very limited, so please contact me asap if you're interested. The workshop in May was great, we had a terrific time, and I got some good feedback so this workshop will be even better. Here's the info:
This 14-Hour Weekend Workshop Includes:
Friday Evening Lecture, 6 - 8 pm: 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

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 and those seeking healing and personal growth through writing. It is primarily about memoir/first person writing though if you have other goals, you can email me to discuss whether the workshop will be helpful to you.
