This year’s Gold Rush Writers is still a month away, so you can save thirty bucks (a $175 value for $145) if you enroll by March 30th. This great bargain in the Sierra foothills includes your choice of sixteen workshops, three meals, featured headliners Cara Black and Michael David Lukas, both with new briskly-selling novels out, and two readings where you might share your own work.
Two years ago one of the participants, Richard Burns, made a photomontage that gives a good idea of how the conference feels: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3uF7l4lxd0M.
That’s me in the red sweater. A workshop I designed for writers of all levels, “Finding Your Voice,” is almost filled. Also, along with prizewinning poets Monika Rose and Kathie Isaac-Luke, I’m leading the poetry workshop.
Novelist Antoinette May has managed make each conference a little better (and better-attended) for six years now, and this year’s lineup looks like she’ll keep raising the bar. Here’s where to go information and to register: http://www.goldrushwriters.com/
