Pennwriters Conference Offers More Than 45 Workshops

I’m teaching a two day seminar at the Pennwriters Conference in May. In addition to that  I’ll be attending as many of the workshops  as possible to learn as much as I can from some very successful writers.  For more information on the conference go to http://www.pennwriters.org/prod/

Over three days, you’ll find more than 45 workshops and panels on five different tracks.
