Every year “Mid-American Review” hosts a writing festival at Bowling Green State University. This year Winter Wheat is November 17 to 19.
I’ve attended the last two years and really enjoyed it. You meet fellow writers and get time to write! The sessions have led me to discover more about topics like memoir, cut and paste poetry, etc. For more information and to sign up (it’s free, but donations are encouraged), go to http://www.bgsu.edu/studentlife/organizations/midamericanreview/wwhome08.html
There will be readings by Kyle Minor, Ann Townsend, and Seth Fried.
And guess what? Yours truly will be giving a session on prompts. Mine is first thing Saturday morning, but it’ll be fun to see what you can do with prompts. In the session I’ll focus on how to create your own. Stay tuned–there will be sneak peeks.
