where the writers are
The Early Bird Deadline for France: Don't Wait!
Outside the workers' cafe in Auvillar

I should have titled this "Writing Paradise for Less."   If you're thinking about going with me to Auvillar, France, this May (17-24), don't delay in making a deposit.   We'll keep the workshop small (under twelve), and  several people have made commitments already.   The Virginia Center for the Creative Arts is offering discounts for writers who enroll before February first, but don't wait.   And there's a discount for belonging to an arts organization.   

 And if you're willing to call yourself a "trailing spouse/partner" then your fee is discounted also.  Christophe Gardner, a master chef and professional photographer, will offer afternoon demonstrations for all who are interested--and that should help to keep our "trailers" happy, too.

Please don't hesitate to contact me for more information: mkallet@utk.edu, and look at the information at the Virginia Center website:  http://www.vcca.com/kallet.html.   I look forward to hearing from you!  And hopefully, to drinking a glass of good Bordeaux at a cafe in Auvillar!  (Okay, okay, I'm buying!)
