Writing Dialogue with David Jón Fuller
Saturday, January 15, 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Writing for Newspapers with David Jón Fuller

Deadline. That's the first thing you need to know, because if you blow that, you're finished.
Performing Your Work with David Jón Fuller

Participants must bring a sample of their own writing (up to 250 words for prose, 30 lines for poetry) which they will read out loud as a part of the workshop.
