Time Out – Squaw Valley Writers Workshop

7 Jul

I’m heading east on I-80 tomorrow, turning right at Rt. 89 and right again into Olympic Valley, otherwise known as Squaw Valley, site of the 1960 Winter Olympics. One solid week of writers and writing. Nirvana!

I’ve been busy this past week, revising the story I’m taking for workshop (the one critiqued by the Dogpatch Writers Collective has been transformed) and the flash fiction I’m taking for any reading opportunities. 

You won’t be hearing much from me until after I return on July 15. Looking forward to dishing about the goings on, so keep an ear out

for me! I’ll be catching up on everyone’s blogs then, too. Ciao!

      Oh, you would have a field day in the bookstore they’ve set up to sell books by all the writers who are teaching and reading here. Oh, bliss!

    Be sure to sigh on my behalf when you stroll past Dagoberto Gilb.

      I’ve already bought two of his books this week. Also, ones from Karen Joy Fowler and Lynn Freed. Someone’s going to have to cut up my credit card soon…

        I know the feeling! I had to pay a weight fee the last time I left Squaw because my suitcase was too heavy with books!

Go ahead, drop a thought into the well and see what happens...
