Call for Workshop Leaders 

The Lake Region Writers Network is looking for workshop presenters for its 2014 Fall Conference. This year’s conference theme, “Writing from Your Roots,” emphasizes and celebrates writing from one’s identity – personal, familial, physical, cultural, historical, spiritual, regional and socio-economic. We are looking for workshop sessions that are as engaging as they are instructive, sessions that tap into the writer’s roots by modeling process and practice.  Please complete and submit the attached proposal form no later than May 1, 2014.
