Happy Holidays from all of us at The Writer's Center! Thanks for making 2009 such a great your at First Person Plural AND at The Writer's Center. 2010 should prove even better--with a new Web site, new initatives, and wonderful opportunities on the way. For example, don't forget that January 4th is the deadline to submit to Lee Gutkind's Master Workshop in Creative Nonfiction (where else can you get the opportunity to learn from the master?). And for female veterans and active-duty personel, there's an opportunity through our Ann Darr Scholarship.
First Person Plural will be on a kind of hiatus from today until January 4th, when we start posting our member submissions. In the meantime, I plan on reposting some old faves for your reading pleasure.
There's still time to submit to Member Month on FPP. If you're a member and would like to tell your story during our Member Month (the entire month of January in the run-up to our 33rd Birthday Celebration with Carolyn Forche and Pagan Kennedy), then by all means submit your stories to me. All I request is between 4-500 words about your experiences here at The Writer's Center.
We'll see you back here in January. The Writer's Center will reopen on January 5th at 10:00 AM. In the meantime, if you'd like to view our workshops or register for one of our events, you can do so right at http://www.writer.org/. You can also see last minute gift ideas from The Writer's Center right here.
