I am delighted to report that I have been chosen to offer two workshops in the upcoming “Stories From the Heart IX” Memoir Conference in Austin, Texas on July 20 – 22, 2018. I will be presenting one of the two Friday pre-conference workshops entitled, “How to Improve Your Writing and Get Published: Flash Fiction and Flash Memoir,” as well as giving a workshop during the conference called, “The How-To’s to Successful Blogging.”
This biennial conference is sponsored by Story Circle Network, which is a non-profit organization “dedicated to helping women share the stories of their lives through memoir, poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and drama, and to raising public awareness of the importance of women’s personal histories.” I am the coordinator for the Online Writing Classes program for Story Circle Network as well as an online teacher, and I am very proud to be part of this fine and inspiring organization.
If you are a woman and have a desire to get your thoughts, feelings, life events or fictional ideas down on paper, then consider attending this wonderful conference. The women are open, wise and wonderful and the workshops will provide down-to-earth writing information that not only informs but also inspires. You will come away feeling nurtured and understood by a group of women who know all about the challenges of life. I have attended this conference for the past several years and always leave feeling filled to the brim with caring and connection.
I would love to see you at both of my workshops! That would be quite a treat for me, all on its own.
