    I am over the MOON to be invited back by the wonderful Writers of Kern. I'll be presenting a special version of my workshop 'The Art of Getting It Wrong.' If you don't know the WOK, it's time to discover them. Started in Bakersfield California in 1996, local authors (published and 'pre-published') have maintained a community of support, sharing resources, experience, and craft. It's where 'Writers Block' goes to die. More info and registration HERE!

    SUMMER IS COMING! And that means it's time to head for Idyllwild California and Writers Week!

    And YES, it's going to be IN-PERSON!  Come discover a  diverse community of writers committed to working together to explore new ideas in the world and in their own creative work. Participants work closely with nationally-regarded faculty in small morning workshops focused on fiction, creative nonfiction, memoir or poetry.  OK, I stole that language from their website. I never would have said, "nationally-regarded." What does that even mean?  I'll be joining the festivities on the 22nd, to offer a workshop and reading.  The faculty are great and you WILL write like crazy. All workshops and afternoon sessions will be held in outdoor studios. Oh, and your faculty will be Ed Skoog, Angela Morales, Allison Adelle Hedge Coke, Kyle Lucia Wu, and Amanda Fortini!  You can find more information and registration HERE!
