Subject: writers workshop at SoonerCon

I wanted to let you know, we have set up a small writers workshop at SoonerCon this year. I know it's late in the year, but final details have just come together. It will be run by Lynn Abbey, NYT bestseller and co-creator of the Shared Universe worldsystem first seen in the Thieves World collections. There will be two sessions for participants; a one on one with Ms. Abbey on friday, and a roundtable with all participants on saturday. This is for writers who feel they are ready for publication. Cost of the workshop is 40.00; a convention membership is also required. That's currently 35.00 for an online pre-reg, but I can probably arrange a discount on that, if you have a student, or students, who are interested. Please have them contact me directly, via email or my cell; 405-595-7147. Hope some of your students will be interested! We'll be better organized at this next year; new hotel, and adding the workshop, are creating a bit of a learning curve all over again for us. Still, I'm thinking it is gonna be a good event, and lots of fun all around.
All Best,
Leonard Bishop
