I have been accepted into the Artist Trust / EDGE Professional Development Program for Literary Artists. This is especially exciting for me because I have never had any type of writer classes or training. I am looking forward to digging in and absorbing as much as I can from this fantastic workshop.
The intensive 55 hour class program “…provides artists with a comprehensive survey of professional practices through a hands-on, interactive curriculum that includes instruction by professionals in the field, as well as specialized presentations, panel discussions and assignments. The EDGE Program focuses on supplying artists with the relevant and necessary entrepreneurial skills to achieve their personal career goals and with the opportunity to develop peer support and exchange.”
Faculty and guest speakers include: Karen Maeda Allman, Elizabeth Austen, Heidi Broadhead (Wave Poetry), Rachel Buker, Rebecca Hoogs, Jourdan Keith, Gary Luke (Sasquatch Books), Dan Mayer, Harold Taw and Elizabeth Wales (Wales Literary Agency).
