I don't have any updates for IN THE REARVIEW, other than I still love it!
Once announcement I do have is that writer's conferences and workshops rock! I went to the Minnesota Writers Workshop yesterday with Chuck Sambuchino and instructing and Red Sofa literary on sight for the panel and pitches. Chuck was absolutely wonderful. He was entertaining and informative, and I left exhausted from so much information, good information. The panel was great as well. Even though it was my first conference, I have to say I loved it!
So I had an idea. What other conferences are coming up in the general Midwest/Minnesota area? Check them out :)
Summer Solstice Retreat: Elephant Rock: June 15th-20th (this year is past - generally yearly)
