Helen just returned from three days at a writers' conference. She joined a group of high school students from around the country for intensive writing workshops, craft sessions, open mics, a contradance, and a jazz concert.
They had over 10 hours of writing workshops.
She had a fabulous time. The weekend was made complete when she received an email from the Vermont Young Writers project informing her that one of her poems had been selected for publication this week. It's her 3rd to be published!
