This is a repeat but one that seems worth posting a second time. It’s time to register for those who are interested in attending. Last year Writers Hall of Fame sponsored a one-day workshop in Springfield, Missouri called “Awakening the Writer Within.” It was a successful event so this year we’re sponsoring another one and calling it “Nourishing the Writer Within.” If you think you might be interested in participating in this workshop, here’s the information about it.
Get inspired! Get answers! Get going!
