Title: List of Writing Workshops & Retreats
Post by: Vonna on September 23, 2019, 11:07 AM
By some miracle, I finally figured out how to fix the technical problem that had pretty much killed my blog for the past two years.  :running
I am not currently listing conferences, but I have started listing retreats and workshops again. If anyone here is organizing a retreat or major workshop and would like to be listed, please let me know. You can see the upcoming events here:

Thanks, Rebecca! I'll get right on it.

Thank you, Debbie! A needle-in-the-haystack internet search found my solution. Fixing it was way outside my computer comfort zone, requiring me to insert incomprehensible coding (frighteningly copied and pasted from the scary world-wide-web) into an area of my computer that I did not know existed. I was stunned when it worked. :faint

 :curtsy Thanks, everyone!

Vijaya, I'm afraid there are no writing retreats on my personal calendar right now, but I do enjoy them, so who knows?
