This has been a fruitful week.
Abdul has been pounding away at finishing up laying out the new Carousel. We're excited about the new, merged look and feel--and it should be in your hands right on schedule next month.
Sunil and Janel set up the workshops and posted them online. Setting up a workshop schedule is a long process--first you start by asking the instructors if they want to teach, then you laboriously plan the class and schedule, and finally voila! you have a schedule. Now it's up and ready. Hard to believe that the fall workshops season is nearly over. Only about 4 classes left to go.
The winter events schedule looks pretty interesting, too. Highlights include an evening with Philip Lopate (who has a new book of two novellas, Two Marriages), performance artist Marty Moran, and a partnership with Arena Stage.
Member Nandini Lal sent me a flyer for a South Asian writing conference in DC that sounds pretty interesting. Here's a link to it: http://www.saltaf.org/saltaf2008/saltaf_home.html
Instructors C.M. Mayo and Leslie Pietrzyk will be our next two guest Wednesday bloggers, starting with C.M. next week. So check it out! C.M.'s gonna post ten writing tips, and those are always helpful, and Leslie will post on one of her recent writer's workshops here at the Center.
That's all for now. I'm going to spend the next week preparing ads and gearing up for the winter workshop/event season. It'll be quite a busy week, but I'll find time to post! On Monday look for a continuation of my discussion on novellas.
Hope to see you tommorow at our Political Cartooning event.
