Fresh from my inbox: Registration for the National Writers’ Workshop in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. is open!
The workshop, hosted by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, is part of a series by the Poynter Institute with six stops across the United States. The writers workshop is definitely one of the top conferences as far as bang for your buck goes. For a measly $110, you get to rub elbows for a day and a half with some of the best wordsmiths out there.
Here’s the info:
