  1. The Workshops have been fabulous. The evening speakers, Dorothy Allison, Christopher Buckley, and Miles Corwin have all been very encouraging. We had a wine and cheese party by the pool with a group of agents and editors. Tonight our speaker is Gar Anthony Haywood.
    My head is spinning with all of the new information and techniques I’ve learned. Can hardly wait to get back to writing!
    Thank you Maxi!
    Hugs and Blessings,
    Jeannie
