    Anthology Workshop Is Back!!!

    After Three Years… Before my big crash and burn and surgery, we had planned to announce on November 1 that we were starting up the Anthology Workshop again. We wanted to give everyone time to make plans. The sales copy is below. I wrote some of it before the crash and burn, but Allyson Longueira at WMG finished it, and Stephanie Writt did the cool flyer.

    ANTHOLOGY WORKSHOP PUSHED BACK ONE YEAR

Actually, this year there is only one Fiction…

    Nifty Blogs

    Anthology Workshop Stuff… Since next year’s anthology workshop sign-ups are filling fast at the moment, as they always do after we finish one, I thought I would share two blogs about the workshop for those curious or thinking about signing up. Both are from writers who attended this year. Tami Veldura and Ron Collins. Tami’s blog is about attending this year. Ron’s is about being an editor at the workshop last year. (And he and Brigid are coming back for the next one to edit.) Once more, the email group for next year’s workshop will start in five months and the writing will start in late November. So this is…
