Have any of you cool cats attended the Erma Bombeck Writers' Workshop? I'm contemplating going next year.

Our pal Linda F. is one of the speakers.

Hi Nancy,

I just registered fifteen minutes ago. :eek: I have never been to the Erma Bombeck Writers' Workshop. When I read my e-mail from Tim Bete I just clicked on the site and registered... If I thought about it I know I would have chickened out!!!

I'll be interested in reading any of the posts you get to this thread.

Take care,
~~~ Alice

YAY Alice! I'm not close otherwise I would meet you there; his email surprised the heck out of me -- at first I thought they'd realized they had made a terrible mistake by not naming me queen last spring.

Hi Alice and Wynter:

Even through the budget groaned, I registered yeterday. Look forward to meeting you, Alice!

And Wynter, don't be a weenie, you aren't THAT far away! Think of the damage, I mean, fun we could have...:D

Okay...I actually live there. I went to law school at the University of Dayton, and live less than ten minutes drive from there. The dates really suck for me, as well as the budget since I'm going to another writer's conference about two weeks or so before this in Louisville. However, if you guys are coming to town, drop me a PM...I'd always be happy to meet writers for dinner or coffee or whatever, or give you fun nifty ideas of things to do during your down times!

Awww! That's such a nice way to remember her legacy! This thread is the first time I've heard of the workshop; I used to look forward to her column every Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday when I was a kid. Need to find her books at the liberry one of these days.
