Check out my first piece for WritersWeekly.com on "Re-writing History." Depending on how it's presented, historical books and articles can either be fascinating or dry and boring. Hopefully writers who are looking to break into this genre will find this helpful.
This Saturday I'm teaching a workshop on Writing Personal Essays Through Journaling at Stonehedge Gardens in Tamaqua, PA. If you've never visited Stonehedge, you're missing out on Schuylkill County's best-kept secret. 7 acres of beautiful public gardens, including a pond, waterfall, and (my favorite), a bamboo garden. The festival will feature 4 workshops--2 writing, 2 poetry--a featured poet, Open Mic sessions, and a marketplace where published poets and authors will be selling their wares.
