Putting My Name In The Hat

Last week was the deadline for applications to present at the upcoming Bombeck Writer’s Workshop, April 5-7, 2018, in Dayton, Ohio.

I put a proposal together, and sent it in. I’ll keep you all posted on what happens. The idea I pitched, based on all the years of speech teaching and coaching, is that writers who can talk about their work before audiences stand a better chance of connecting with their ideal readers.

We’ll see if this is true! I picked this humor conference because, as you know, my favorite genre is humor.

Even though I’ve never had the chance to attend this workshop, I know a good deal about it. I’ve followed its activity for years now–it’s an every-other-year affair–and the slots sell out in a matter of days. I’ve bought the conference recordings and enjoyed them immensely.

Look at the event’s website to get more details. Here’s that link http://humorwriters.org/.

If you think you’re interested in attending, the time to apply is early December.

I’ll find out if I am “in” come mid June, 2017.
