Day 2: Story Circle Network Writing Conference

Today I went to classes on poetry, marketing, the value of place in writing and developing a writing voice. There were so many great options that it was hard to decide which classes to pick. I was very pleased with my four choices: the presenters were excellent in each and I came away with information that I can put into immediate practice. To me that is the very definition of a worthwhile workshop.

We also heard the May Sarton Award Winners read excerpts from their books during lunch. I was deeply impressed by the quality of the writing, which was absolutely beautiful.

This evening I hosted a table at dinner for anyone interested in or already participating in the online class program. We had a lively group with lots of laughter and good conversation. The food was good too!

This was another outstanding day at the conference. These women are so genuine, dedicated and talented. It’s a real treat to be among them.

Here are pictures of the various workshops I attended and our table at dinner:
