Southwest Wisconsin Book Festival, Sept. 14, 2013

Please join me and other authors (including my colleague Laurie Scheer) at this fun event in Mineral Point, Wisconsin. Workshops, presentations, good food and more in a quaint and vibrant historic town with great shops and galleries. When I was in high school (Barneveld, Wis.), our marching band marched through these streets. I played the clarinet. http://swwibookfestival.com/

Weekend with Your Novel—“Voice,” Nov. 8-10, 2013

This event is for all novelists—new or advanced. There are two tracks and loads of workshops, plus critique groups that give you valuable feedback on your first 10 pages. I’m rolling up my sleeves and teaching here as well as leading critique groups. The main workshop day is Saturday, Nov. 9, $125. If that’s not good for your schedule or budget, consider coming to the Friday evening workshop on how to create a great author voice or character voice in our $35 workshop. Sponsored by UW-Madison Continuing Studies and held in Madison at Pyle Center, 702 Langdon St. on Saturday, and Lowell Center, 610 Langdon Street for the Friday night and Sunday morning events. http://continuingstudies.wisc.edu/lsa/writing/weekend.htm
