Do you want to take a week long writing class at the John C. Campbell Folk School?
Hello writers, especially you practicing poets. I recommend the upcoming writing class to be taught by Rosemary Royston, July 10-16, 2011. The focus will be on HOMOR IN WRITING. This is a class that I scheduled before I resigned as Resident Writer of the folk school. I know Rosemary well and know her ability. She has been writing and publishing for years and earned her MFA in Writing at Spalding University. Her own poetry chapbook is presently being published. She is at this time, one of the strongest instructors teaching at the folk school. A one week class can be intense, for sure, but with humor mixed in,
how can you go wrong in your writing and your life? I predict such a week will change your writing life in all the good ways you would hope.
