  1. Wish I could be there. You're a brilliant teacher, Jo.

  2. Any interest in recording this, Jo? You could upload an audio file onto your website. If the workshop people approve, of course. I would love to hear it! I would even make an online donation to the library.

  3. I must say that no one can accuse the Chesterfield County Public Library of overcharging their patrons. For the price of two movie tickets, you get 4 terrific presentations and a box lunch? They must be using Regency currency.

    I wish I could be there. :(

  4. I wish you could videotape this, Jo. I'd pay big bucks to see one of your workshops!

  5. Wish you were closer... like South Carolina!

  6. I'm sitting down tomorrow, I think, and going over the presentation in my mind. Maybe writing out some notes.

    I've never thought of recording any of this. *g* A little bit more hightech than is usual for me.

  8. After attending the amazing panel discussion in Charlottesville last weekend, I am very sad that I didn't know about this workshop in Chesterfield before it happened. :(
    The good news is that my Chesterfield writers' group has resolved to be more aware of these opportunities in the future.

  9. Hi Chan --

    The library system there seems to be just topnotch. There were a couple presentations going on the same day I gave mine.
