Add to your calendar
Date: November 9, 7:30 am
Continues Until:
Location: Blue Sage Center for the Arts
Details:

Writing for Love, Writing for Money is a seminar conducted by author Craig Childs and writer Angus Stocking, which examines both sides of the writing life; how to stay inspired, and how to make a living.

Childs is an acclaimed author of more than a dozen books, and is so well known for his travels in the American southwest that the New York Times says, “Childs's feats of asceticism are nothing if not awe inspiring: he's a modern-day desert father.” Stocking has been a full time freelance writer since 2002, and has published several hundred feature articles in more than 50 magazines and journals. Both will be sharing the strategies and daily practices that have enabled them to stay passionate about writing for decades, while also paying the bills and making a good living.

This is Craig Childs’ only 2013 non-academic writing seminar.

Both will be sharing the strategies and daily practices that have enabled them to stay passionate about writing for decades, while also paying the bills and making a good living.

Seminar attendance is limited to 30. General registration is $185, and includes: eight hours of intensive instruction, books and other materials, lunch with award winning science fiction writer Paolo Bacigalupi, and an evening reception that brings together seminar participants and Western Colorado writers & artists.

Premium Packages available, including: 2 nights lodging and breakfast at Fresh & Wyld Farmhouse Inn, Friday night dinner with the authors, and copies of their books personally inscribed. Please call Margot at 206 913-3962 for more information.
