Writers Conferences and so on
- Hi all,
I'm not having a lot of luck. I know I used to attend writer's
conferences, seminars, short courses, stuff like that, ten years ago and
more. I am looking for something along the lines of a long weekend or four
weekdays, something like that, either with a specific theme or the
mechanics of writing and rewriting. As I've gotten older I seem to be
getting pickier about how I use my time, so there are more events that I
can review and decide they won't be a good fit, but there should still be
some within a few hours' drive.
In college I took a weekend crash course reading Chaucer's Troilus and
Cressyde (sp). After college I went on retreats at monasteries (including
one with Madeleine L'Engle) and conferences about manuscript mechanics
(formatting, the submission process, etc.). I've even been to the Omega
Institute in Rhinebeck. There should be no end of opportunities. Where am
I not looking?
PS I hope this post gets through OK. I just switched virus protection
software and am having some "issues".
