While I have your attention:
The 4th Street Writers Workshop is currently accepting submissions for new members. If you are serious about writing (fiction or nonfiction) and would like to join a workshop run in the traditional manner, please send a brief writing biography and a minimum of six pages of prose to Kim Haas at kimhaasdesign(at)sbcglobal(dot)net. This workshop meets approximately every other Sunday at 11:30 a.m. in Royal Oak. Occasionally, outside sources such as stories, essays and even novels may be discussed as a group in order to address specific writing concerns that develop.
