Writing Workshop / Conference - Entry#:001

This is great introductory book on the Writing Workshop. Gives practical information.

Interested in the creative writing workshops.

In sixth grade, we did a section on space, which fascinated me. I retained a lot of what I learned. Later, I took astronomy and learned even more about the universe. A class on women writers exposed me to a whole world of literature I didn’t know existed. And two writing workshops (poetry and creative writing) put me on the path to becoming a professional writer.

Being new to LA, and recently rejected by many MFA programs, I found myself a bit lost to say the least. However, by chance, I found out about Writing Workshops LA and I'm happy to say that I am on my fourth round of taking Chris Daley's Creative Nonfiction class. Not only have I found an intimate community of writers, but also direction. I may not be working towards an MFA, but am working towards completing my first book. My dedication page will definitely include Chris and her class.
