The Craft of Writing

The Craft of Writing, a conference sponsored by Wisconsin Writers Association, is happening on September 30 and Oct. 1, 2022 at Barkers Island Inn & Conference Center in Superior, Wisconsin. I'm on a panel "Tips and Tricks for Writing Across Genres" with four other great writers: Jan Jensen (fiction), Christy Wopat (nonfiction/memoir), Dale Botten (screenwriting), and Chris Monroe (children's book author/illustrator.   There are also wonderful presentations and opportunities to meet people and talk about the craft of writing.
