From the Writers’ Workshop Director

We have a great turn out for this year’s workshop! I am excited to meet you all (and to catch up with the returning students)! We’re going to have a great day working on our craft and learning about the business of writing in genre.

To keep the critique group ratios the same, we have added more professionals to the faculty roster. Check out the list at the bottom of the workshop page to see who will be sharing their knowledge and expertise on workshop day!

See you August 3rd!

–Rebecca Schwarz
