Just wanted to toss in a thanks for posting about your experience. As I mentioned in another thread on a similar subject, I’ve been itching to go to one, but finding a right place and a right time has been hard.
On a separate note, I know you live in the Research Triangle, but seriously can’t the literary fellas at Chapel Hill, Wake, Duke, etc. get enough creative types to have a writing workshop a little closer to home? Sheesh.
