writing by writers

Some of my favorite writers will be teaching workshops this coming October at Tomales Bay–Pam Houston, Ron Carlson, Antonya Nelson, Cheryl Strayed, Fenton Johnson, and Carl Phillips.

Writing By Writers is hosting six workshops October 16-20, 2013 at the Marconi Conference Center in Marshall, California, which is just north of San Francisco in Marin County.

Some of these writers are leading traditional workshops where work is submitted and critiqued, and Antonya and Cheryl are doing generative workshops.

I will be there in October and just noticed that if you apply by April 1, you qualify for an early writer discount. So how about a literary vacation?
