Reminder from Velda

My Spring Writer’s Workshop will be held at Ozark Folkways on April 9,  from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m? As always, I will work one-on-one with up to 20 writers.

Whatever you have in mind, I will help you with. From memoirs, biographies and creative nonfiction to short stories and novels. Bring a journal that I can help you transform into salable stories or articles; bring family stories that can be turned into fiction or nonfiction; bring an idea for a story; we can also discuss the viability of ebooks or Kindle for your work and show you how to get started.

To register send $25 to Ozark Folkways, 22733 N. Highway 71, Winslow, AR 72959. As always, lunch is on your own. The group goes to Grandma’s House or you may bring your own lunch and join us there.  A part of the proceeds from the workshop goes to Ozark Folkways, a nonprofit organization that offers workshops and is an outlet for original arts and crafts handmade in the Ozark region.

I look forward to seeing you there. The Ozark Folkways Heritage Center is located on Highway 71, between Winslow and Mt.Gaylor. With luck the dogwoods will be in bloom and the mountains will be laced in their creamy blossoms.
