“Mini-Writers’ Conference” on the Galleria Stage @ San Mateo County Fair

June 6, 2012

You won’t have heard much from me lately.  At least a part of that is due to the fact that  I’ve been so involved with putting together the Galleria Stage (Opening day June 9), that blogging is very far down the list of things that absolutely must get done.

The idea for this stage (and it is a community effort, involving key members of the California Writers’ Club San Francisco-Peninsula Branch–Bardi Koodrin, Laurel Anne Hill, Darlene Frank, and a double handful of others) is that for the first two days it is a “mini-conference” for those in the SF Bay Area whose budgets or travel plans can’t stretch to meet the demands of a REAL writers’ conference.

The first two days (June 9-10) are full of writers’ workshops.  I can’t recommend them highly enough, especially Geri Spieler’s “Why Facts Matter” and Martha Engber’s “Growing Great Characters from the Ground Up”.  I recommend these in preference ONLY because I’ve seen both of these great workshops already in other venues,and can personally affirm that they will enlarge your authorial capacity.

The other workshops I am eagerly anticipating, for what they can do to help my own writing be all that it can be.

And, check the fair website for all the other workshops that are going on all week, as well as the reading, musical (see me in the Long  Splices Monday) and poetry events: https://www.sanmateocountyfair.com/contests/departments/literary-arts/175
