Friday News

Today, I'd like to start by saying that this will be the last blog post for a couple weeks. I'll be off to Denmark (two days from now as I write this), and won't return until Aug. 1st. In two weeks, Adele Steiner will be a guest blogger for the whole week, and she'll have some very special guests: participants in her Poetry and Narrative Verse for Teens workshop. That means that our monthly column from Glimmer Train, Glimmer Thursday, will be postponed until August.

We will rest. BUT don't forget, fall workshops are now available online, and we've got an outstanding lineup of great events. To see the full range of workshops and events, click back to our Web site.

Now, check out workshop leaders David A Taylor & Chris Piers in the news:

Taylor (science writing) was featured on BookTV, and you can watch it here.

Piers (comic book writing) was profiled in the Washington Examiner here.

Another workshop leader, Dennis Drabelle, has a new book. My interview with him is here. And he'll be reading July 15th at 6:30pm at Barnes & Noble (555 12th St. NW).

And Serena over at Savvy Verse and Wit (and Examiner) wrote this nice little piece about The Writer's Center's new Undiscovered Voices program.

That's what I have for now. This fall, look for more reviews here at First Person Plural and, if we can, member profiles, interviews, workshop leader discussions, and craft articles.

Be in touch in August!

Have a great time in Denmark. Here's to your writing, should you get any done.

Thanks for mentioning the examiner piece. I should write up some others, and include some Writer's center events.
