Come to the PTWC & “Tell Secrets” & be a “Crossover Artist” with me! 7/16-7/23

Do you want to take a workshop with me, called “Telling Secrets” or “Crossover Artists”? If you do, come to Port Townsend this week, and we’ll write letters and compose CNF lists of aboutnesses together. You can also take workshops with lots of other PNW & national writers. . . and attend readings, and wander the cliffs above the sea.
