The weekend of May 19th and 20th will harvest the third annual National Writers Workshop at the La Quinta Inn and Suites near the River Walk and River Center Mall in San Antonio. This will be my first experience at a workshop, let alone a writers workshop. As a writer and a journalist, this is quite exciting for me.
I will be covering Saturday's Alternative Press Forum, featuring John Dougherty, freelance investigative reporter for New York Times, and David Pasztor, managing editor for Texas Observer. The other forum I will 'blog' about is early Sunday morning, specifically Keynoter Roy Peter Clark, writing coach for the Poynter Institute. This will be a wonderful experience for writers, journalists and anyone who is interested.
