Yesterday, by sheer coincidence, I discovered that registration was about to open for the 2010 Erma Bombeck Writers' Workshop in April at the University of Dayton in Erma's (and my) hometown of Dayton, Ohio. It's billed as "The workshop for humor writing, human interest writing, networking and getting published."

What could I do? I signed up!
Now, I have NEVER attended a writers' workshop before in my life, and I haven't submitted writing for a print publication since I sent some lame anecdote off to Reader's Digest when I was a kid. (It was, of course, rejected.) However, I have been emboldened by my brief experience writing for Litdotorg's own Majestic newsletter, and with this golden opportunity so close at hand, I am, with no small degree of trepidation, pushing myself to the next level. I must be out of my freakin' mind.
I'm also passing along this information just in case any other Litdotorg writer/reader might be interested! See the link above for more info about the workshop. (Be advised: apparently this workshop sells out very quickly!)If you decide to attend, please comment here to let me know! Maybe we can make arrangements to meet In Real Life!
Oh, yeah - please go read December's Majestic too! (This month with twice as much LinnieRed, thanks to Karma Tsering Lhamo's EXPOSED! interview of yours truly!)
How's that for shameless self-promotion?
