Greetings, guys.I also just found this board. I have one book and a fair number of newspaper and magazine articles to my credit and was editor of a weekly paper, but probably still qualify as an "aspiring" or "wannabe" writer.I'm getting ready to attend 2 free writing classes offered by our state library and am looking forward to them. One is Writing a Novel and Getting it Published and the other is The Art of the Short Story.I went to several writers workshops some years ago and found them moderately helpful. Those that were sponsored by academic institutions less so because many of the writers on the panel were academics and were not able to relate particularly well to those of us not in academe. More than anything else, being around writers and pulishers (and agents!) juiced me up and got me back to a daily (or at least weekly) discipline.I would be interested in hearing other opinions of writing seminars. Did they help? Did you make contacts that led to publication?I look forward to reading this board and hope we can all help and encourage each other.Cantey
