Join us for the 2014 Lakeside Writers Weekend, "Write Where You Are," at the Lakewood Supper Club, Ortonville, Minn., kicking off on Friday, Sept. 19 with a public reading at the Ortonville Public Library, then workshops on Sat., Sept. 20 from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. and Sun., Sept. 21 from 9 a.m. -1 p.m.
The two workshop presenters are Judy Wilson and myself, Marianne Zarzana, creative writing professors at Southwest Minnesota State University, Marshall, Minn.
Wilson, returning by popular demand after leading the September 2013 workshop, will present an advanced workshop for writers of fiction and creative non-fiction. Wilson has published a book of short stories titled Trespass. In addition, she has been published in Renovated Lighthouse Literary Magazine, Product, Southern Literary Festival Anthology, Skylark Literary Annual, Mississippi Review, and The Atlantic Monthly’s Atlantic Unbound.
My workshop is open to writers at all levels of writing experience and covers all genres—poetry, non-fiction and fiction—as well as blogging. On Sunday during the workshop, we will both present information on promoting and publishing literary work. I have recently published essays in Notre Dame Magazine, and my poetry has appeared in Savoring (a collaborative art and poetry exhibit), Dust & Fire, Farming Words, Blue Earth Review, Minnesota River Review, Umbrella Journal, and Kitchen Scraps among other publications.
