Update: Retreat at the Beach

If you're interested in taking either a knitting or magazine writing workshop (see Feb. 11 post), please visit my website for more details. Classes are small, so each student will get lots of attention, but that means space is limited.

Write (or Knit) at the beach

Like to write? Like to knit? Well, a retreat at the Trinity Center at the North Carolina Outer Banks will offer workshops in both. I will be teaching a class on beginning magazine writing, and Jacqui Mehring will be offering a knitting class. Here's the blurb for my class (more details will be posted soon):

"Magazine Writing and More" - An introduction to freelance magazine writing but also a source of inspiration for those who want to write but don't know how to get started. Beginners and seasoned writers who just need a jolt of creativity are welcome.

DATE: first weekend in August
COST: $300 (will also confirm, along with details about how to apply)
INCLUDES: meals, accommodation, workshop
