Next month features our annual Young Writers’ event with Mike Jung on the courage it takes to write and get it out there. Come and hear his advice to this year’s winners of our young writer contests. See the next program page at http://cwcmtdiablowriters.wordpress.com/next-program/
The second CWC Literary Review is on the street, a few pages larger and better all around. We learn as we do, especially when entering new fields of endeavor. If you’re a member and have a comment, I’m opening the door here. If not, you may want to join the CWC and be a part of this publication and drink in the tasty rest. It’s a great opportunity to see your work on a semi-glossy page and in front of the eyes of 1600 others. Of course it must be worthy—stand taller than most that come in, maybe 200 others. ~Dave LaRoche.

Mmmm! Sounds good, doesn’t it? Our fabulous January workshop leader, Constance Hale, is offering a writers retreat at Camp Mokule’ia on O’ahu’s North Shore from April 7-12, 2013. A brief description from Connie: “With the Waianae Mounts at our backs and the open ocean at our fronts, writers of all ages and experience levels will learn from the masters, break bread with colleagues, write in the shade of ironwoods, wander along the beach, salute the sun in morning yoga, and come to understand the essence of Hawaii through evening programs led by island composers, dancers, and musicians.” Sounds terrific, doesn’t it?
