Learning New Tricks, II

I often teach workshops at the Johns Hopkins Master's Program in Writing in Washington, DC, so I'm pleased to announce that the program is once again offering its popular "Conference on Craft." Exciting enough as is...but this conference is in Florence, Italy.

Alas, no, I'm not going. That's quite okay--I prefer to stay home and sweat through the famous 3H DC summers (3H = hot + humid + hazy).

Among the people who do get to go and teach are fiction writer Alice McDermott (who taught my workshop when I was a fellow at the Sewanee Writers' Conference; talk about a smart teacher and perceptive reader of work) and poet Dave Smith.

Go here for more information. And please send me a postcard!
