This Saturday I had the pleasure of doing my Killer Description and Dialogue workshop with the Write on the River group in Wenatchee, Washington--a lovely town on the east slope of the Cascades.
The writers there range from beginning to published pros, and they were sharp and talented folks. It was a real pleasure to work with them. I urge writers in eastern Washington to get in touch.
They also put on a writers conference in mid-May. By all reports, it's a good one. I'll be applying to do my Killer First Page workshop there next year--wish me luck.
Wordstock in Portland Oct 13 & 14
I'll be presenting my novel, The Vampire Kitty-cat Chronicles, at Wordstock on Saturday, October 13, 2012 4:00pm - 5:00pm @ Work for Art Stage (OCC, Room D-134). Normally two writers share an hour, but for some reason I have the whole hour. It's going to be very interesting to me to find out what I'm going to do for an hour--unfortunately, my tap-dancing lessons are very deep in the remote past. If you're there, please come by to say hi.
And I'm doing my Killer First Page workshop Saturday, 12:00pm - 1:15pm @ Minuteman Press Team Writer's Workshop Stage A (OCC, Room D-139)
I'm also on a panel of blogging authors, Sunday, October 14, 2012 1:00pm - 2:00pm @ Work for Art Stage (OCC, Room D-134).
I'll be busy, but there's nothing more fun than talking about writing and helping others along the learning curve.
Now you see why I call this blog "Flogging the Quill."
For what it's worth,
