I am very excited to be on the faculty of the Napa Valley Writers Conference this summer– July 22-27. Come take a creative writing couse in the beautiful Napa Valley in Northern California. I’ll be teaching a five-day fiction workshop, and so will my mentor, Ron Carlson. It’s a lovely opportunity and there are scholarships available.
I really urge writers to take summer classes. It’s a great way to meet other writers, with whom you will may form critique groups that will sustain you long after the summer class is over. If you are thinking about joining an MFA program, this is an opportunity to see how you like talking about your work in a roundtable classroom setting. In other words– win-win.
