Well, the reviews are in and they’re great!

OK, I’ve actually had them for weeks, but I just remembered that I have to send them to Communiversity at UC. In April, I taught a one-day workshop called “Writing to Publish.” We had a great class, with lots of good questions about writing, formatting, and publishing your work.

Here are some of the highlights from the evaluations:

“You learn from a person who actually practices. Thank you. Loved it!”

“I learned exercises to help me unlock my writing blocks.”

“Fantastic! I truly learned so much about the writing market. [Would recommend this class to others] absolutely — so informative and so constructive. Very thorough, I wouldn’t change a thing.”

Your next opportunity to hear my instruction on writing and publishing will be at my Capon Springs Nonfiction Writers’ Retreat. Even if fiction’s your thing, you’ll benefit from the beautiful surroundings and the instruction from Ann Hagedorn and me.

Registration deadline is August 15. Make your $50 deposit through PayPal to reserve your place.

We had a great May meeting at Allyn’s Cafe on May 17! We’ve been delighted to welcome new members to the last several meetings. A rowdy group sat a little too close to us, but they were riding the high after participating in a local fundraiser, so we can forgive their boisterousness. ;-)

Our June meeting will be Sunday, June 14, at 2 p.m. (Don’t worry: Father’s Day is the following weekend.)

If you’re not ready to read your own material, feel free to just sit in and get your feet wet.

Hey folks! The Writing Workshop Workshop is still set for 2 p.m. today at Olive’s on Ludlow in Clifton’s gaslight district. We’re sad that today is Olive’s last day; they’re closing to become a music venue. So one of our topics will be to discuss where to meet in the future.

Another topic today will be this past week’s Antioch Writers’ Workshop and next year’s headliners.

For newbies to the Writing Workshop Workshop, we are a friendly group where you can bring any genre of writing to learn the arts of critiquing and being critiqued. Bring seven minutes’ worth of material to read out loud and $5 for the kitty (more $ if you intend to eat). And bring a friend!

Our future meetings will most likely be August 10, September 14, October 12, November 9, December 14, pending everyone’s availability.
