NEW Workshop!

May 8, 2009

Is this the same workshop that took place in Walnut Creek earlier in February or is this different? Fatima

Thanks for asking this, Fatima. This is a completely different workshop. We are going to focus on different aspects of writing fiction. We hope to have some “old” faces and some new ones too! You can help us by spreading the news to your friends and teachers. Thanks! Liz
