…because the discount on the best little writers’ conference in the west expires after that. Seriously, if you want a day of inspiration and enlightenment, come to the Field’s End Writers’ Conference. FE has a WordPress blog now, too. Visit to learn more about the stunning setting, incredible workshops by Priscilla Long, whose cult-like following expands every year. Girlfriends Mary Guterson & Carol Cassella who will be keeping it real for you. Gentleman George Shannon as the ever-effervescent emcee. Jim Lynch, who ignored an e-mail I once sent him, trying to ID something on my beach, so I’ll give him trouble about that. Mignon Fogarty, the one and only Grammar Girl. And…be still my heart…they are making collages! Do you hear me? COLLAGES. Best writing tool since peacock-blue ink was invented.
