Francesca Lia Block gives you a sneak peek into this Saturday's SMASHING STEREOTYPES! Writing Workshop

So I saw Francesca recently, and we shot this short video:

We're both really excited about our hands-on writing workshop this Saturday, September 11, 2010, from 11am to 3pm in West Hollywood, CA - and hope you can join us.

Here's the ad book soup ran for it!

And it was even covered in a local paper here in LA!

You can still get tickets here or by calling 1-800-838-3006.

The workshop fee is $50.-, with a $10.- discount for students, teachers, librarians, and members of SCBWI. Oh, and 10% of ticket and book sales at the event will go to City of Hope (a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center located just northeast of Los Angeles) - the charity Francesca chose. And did I mention the workshop includes a hot catered lunch?

But most important, it's a chance to learn from Francesca Lia Block, and to explore together the tools and techniques for SMASHING STEREOTYPES in your writing, and in your life!

Want more details?

Hope to see you there!

ps- I found the amazing (and license-free) Aurora Australis background image I used in the video here!

WOW! and to think that I 'ran' into this blog by (simply?) clicking the NEXT button.

Smashing Stereotypes! Nice! Won't the event be smashing? I mean, how did that word expand beyond broken pumpkins and car accidents to become an exciting exclamation?: "aren't those stereotypes smashing?"
