Just sent out my October 2014 newsletter, chock full of book news, the best from the blogs, the news about the Texas Book Festival, and more. Read it here.
My one day only workshop on Literary Travel Writing will be this Saturday October 11 at the Writer’s Center in Bethesda, MD
Literary Travel Writing WorkshopTake your travel writing to another level: the literary, which is to say, giving the reader the novelistic experience of actually traveling there with you. For both beginning and advanced writers, this workshop covers the techniques from fiction and poetry that you can apply to this specialized form of creative nonfiction for deliciously vivid effects.
