“Don’t Just Fill the Pail, Light the Fire: Continuing Your Writing Education” with Marissa Marangoni & Tobin F. Terry
Saturday, Nov. 15, 1-2:15pm (Session E5)

Session E5This workshop will discuss the many ways writers can continue educating themselves on writing after their formal education ends—or even without a formal education altogether. It is a challenge to obtain a writing education outside of an academic setting due to time constraints and life commitments, but continuing to learn and develop the craft of writing is essential to all writers’ success. This presentation will supply participants with an overview of resources and tools to continue (or start) their writing education.

Who should attend?
Commoners (and anyone interested in collecting some great writing resources to further their writing education and inspiration!).

What can attendees expect from your workshop?
Pure, 100%, unadulterated workshop.

Name one fun fact or bit of trivia about this session:
One of the presenters once ate 90 chicken wings in one sitting. And the other presenter would only be useful in the eating-gross-things part of Fear Factor.
