Writing From Your Life

I've just returned from a great week at The Clearing in Door County, Wisconsin where I taught a workshop on "Writing From Your Life." Fifteen students from younger to older wrote their stories and shared them for critique. What fun it was.

I'm doing a one day intro workshop on the topic Saturday, September 15. Check my website and the Clearing's website for details.

I remember your saying something like this to the group I was with at one of the first Rhinelander School of the Arts sessions. You were kind enough to say I should submit my writing to a magazine, but, coward as I was, I never did. But I always remembered you as a great teacher. Thanks. Diana
