I know, I know. I’ve been totally remiss in my duty to update this site. My day job has been busy. Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa! I will update fully as soon as I can string together a couple hours. (Or, better yet, if anyone knows of someone who is interested in interning for me to compile listings in a Word doc that I can then copy and paste into the site, that would be beyond spectacular. You can e-mail me or leave a comment below.)
I do have one listing I wanted to share right now, though. It’s a 10-week program from The Common, a gorgeous literary magazine affiliated with Amherst College, called Weekly Writes. It costs all of $15, and you can read all about it here. You do have to sign up by June 30, as it starts July 1. Hope to “see” y’all there!
