Thanks to Torie Amarie Dale and everyone else at the South Carolina Writers Association for a great conference!

The conference is full of great company, including conference participants and organizers, SCWA board members, fellow faculty, and even blue herons. Hope to see everyone there next year!

Metaphor: An Invitation, a 3-hour online workshop

April 11 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm

“What a metaphor expresses cannot be said directly or apart from it, for if it could be, one would have said it directly.” (from Lying: A Metaphorical Memoir, by Lauren Slater) A metaphor is suggestive — it creates new meanings and associations. And it can teach the writer, too — as we intuitively create metaphors, we discover more about our subjects. Join me for this evening workshop for prose writers!
