Before we began, we signed books and spoke to some of the attending writers: some just starting out, some well on their way and some already published.
Once we began Sherrie, Kim, Val and I handed out material for the sessions. We mixed talking with exercises that we hope would be beneficial. And we were fortunate to have a sterling group of writers who leapt into participating.
For us though, the ultimate joy was hearing that a new writing group formed from writers in this workshop. This is the best payback we could ask for.
