Weekly Wrap-up

So we come to the close of a long week (sort of). Tomorrow I'll be participating in Anne Cassidy's "Polishing Your Personal Essay" workshop, which should be fun. Then on Sunday I'll be at the reading with James Mathews and Alex MacLennan--a reading that kicks off The Writer's Center's 32nd Birthday Celebration Week.

All next week, stay tuned to and this blog for Trivia Questions and contest winners. We've got a lot of responses already for the first question (which was sent as an e-blast on Wednesday). There's still time to play along. Here's the question:

What Native Washingtonian and Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist was a Writer's Center workshop leader? Choose one.

A) Phillip Lopate

B) Edward P. Jones

C) Robert Olen Butler

D) Alice McDermott

Send your answers to by NOON on Monday. The drawing will be held at 12:01.

Also next week, be sure to check out this blog for cool stories from the "history vault." Here's the lineup:

Monday: Sunil Freeman, the longest tenured employee here
Tuesday: Northern Virginia Writers
Wednesday: Instructor Barbara Esstman
Thursday: Mystery guest
Friday: Charlie Jensen, the new Director (who'll discuss the WC's future)

Until next week!
