At our workshops, we’ll discuss anything. Last week, when I was leading a workshop, we were discussing the trials of entering the dating market when you’re over 60. (Dating, it was noted at the workshop table, is perilous at any age.)
One of our writers had written about a woman entering the dating market after her husband of 30 years passed away. The novel-in-progress generated quite a discussion. Beyond that, I can’t comment about what was said. Like they say about Las Vegas: What happens in workshop, stays in workshop.
But if you’d like to be privy to workshop conversations, there’s one thing you can do: sign up and claim your seat.

In case you missed it: Grier Martin’s conversation with poet Rebecca Durham went live last month at Mud Season Review, but it’s a gem. Check this out and all of Mud Season Review’s interviews with authors.
