I am excited! The 15th of January will be my first workshop with writer and editor Tanya Wilton. “Whiton’s fiction has recently been featured in Collateral, CutBank, Fanzine, The Cincinnati Review, and Beer & Weed Magazine. A finalist for the 2019 Tennessee Williams Contest, she won second place in Zoetrope: All Story’s 2017 Short Fiction Contest. She is also the co-writer and an associate producer of the documentary feature THE ZEN SPEAKER: BREAKING THE SILENCE. A two-time recipient of the Martin Dibner Memorial Fellowship for Maine writers (once for fiction, once for poetry) Tanya has also received New England Press Association Awards for her nonfiction work. In collaboration with photographer Heidi Killion, she published Two for the Road: Adventures in Maine—a collection of travel essays—in 2014. A former Associate Director of the Solstice MFA in Creative Writing Program, Tanya teaches creative writing and professional development skills for writers, and has created seminars for the Solstice MFA Program, Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance, Lesley University, and the Stonecoast Writers’ Conference. Visit: https://www.tanyakwhiton.com/at Maine Writers & Publisher’s Alliance. You have signed up for the workshop, The Things People Say, which is about “conversational dialog.”
For this event, I have submitted the beginning of a fictional story written for ages 14 and up. The story is about Ruby Luna a hippogriff and her young wizardess Poldra. I am establishing who they are and where they live. A commitment! One of two commitments. The other is also a writing project. The manual for Shibui Found Image Art. I work best with two projects.
