Writer’s Resources for “Finding Your AUTHORity: An Interactive Workshop”

From Linda J. Armstrong

I am excited about leading a workshop at the Scribblers’ Retreat Writers’ Conference at 9 AM on Friday, August 14. 

This blog post features resources from my handout. If you are unable to attend, watch “One Way to Wonder” for selected hints and inspiration from the session.
