National Writers Workshop!?

Writers may want to look into the National Writers Workshop hosted by CSU Fullerton. Though promoted to have “something for everybody,” it is heavily geared toward journalists. A quick glance at the speakers and all of them are journalists, former journalists, or giving presentations targeting journalists. Nothing wrong with that, I suppose, but if you’re an aspiring writer of children’s books, science fiction or historical biographies, I’d recommend looking beyond their “something for everybody” marketing claim. Sure, it might be worth checking out — I’m just not sure if it’s worth checking out to the tune of $50 for all of the “other writers” out there.
Details: Saturday, April 30. $50 / $25 for members of AAJA, IRE and the Orange County Press Club, students and journalism professors.

    Save your money on the workshop. You would be better off buying a copy of Stephen King’s “On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft”. It is an honest commentary on writing. Though I am not a “writer” by any means it was a pleasant read. I recommend it highly to aspiring writers.
