EVENT: Free Writing, Marketing, and Researching Workshops at #PALitFest
“If I rest, I rust.” This maxim is true for all of us, writers included!
Key to the Pennsylvania Literary Festival’s mission of educating and informing the public is providing growth opportunities for writers of all skill levels. Our workshops are offered in a small classroom setting, conducive to interaction. With this idea in mind, the seating capacity for each workshop is 22 people. Registration is first-come, first-served, and should be completed online.
Not a writer? Not a problem, workshops are open to the public and free of charge.
