Hope springs eternal, and this year Don and Lisa Barnett made another try at a writers' workshop. This was more of a focussed effort, devoted only to writers, and included a number of quick-and-dirty exercises that could be done right there, rather than a continuing assignment. The session was moderately successful, and a few of the participants showed some willingness to continue working.
The workshop was scheduled directly after a panel called "Tips for Would-Be Professional Writers," which featured Don, Lisa, and Scott McMillan.
In addition, Don was on another panel, "When is it Politically
Correct to be Politically Incorrect?" with Melissa Scott
and Katherine Kurtz. The moderating skills of Carl Cipra prevented
the panel from falling immediately into trite cliches, and it
actually turned out to be a rather interesting discussion.
