A writing workshop, upcoming salon, & radio

I always forget to post here that my Gotham Writing Workshop called "Jumpstart Your Writing" begins on October 2. You can read all about it here. It's an online workshop for writers who need to, as it says, jumpstart their writing.  There's exercises, lectures, critiques.  What's also fun about it is that writers from all over the world participate.  Email me if you have questions for me.

Also, the Pen on Fire Writers Salon will host novelists Susan Straight and Tatjana Soli on Sept. 18.  You can read more about it here.

And the show (Writers on Writing) as always, broadcasts Wednesday mornings at 9 a.m. PT on KUCI-FM 88.9.  Listen at iTunes college radio or at (click on the upper right hand corner and listen on your computer or smart phone).  Podcasts of past shows are posted here and on (the dedicated show blog).   Coming up this month and next are Laura Lippman, Rex Pickett ("Sideways" author), Cheryl Strayed, Jo-Ann Mapson, Arthur PlotnikIlie Ruby, D.T. Max and Claire Johns.

Hi Barbara,
Just read your interview with Dinah Lenney in Voices on Writing from the August 2012 issue of ASJA and want to tell you how much I enjoyed it. Thanks!

Thanks, Toby!
For those who may be interested, the interview is in the Sept. issue of The ASJA Monthly which you can access by going to and click on The ASJA Monthly.

Dinah is so articulate about the process of writing memoir, isn't she?

I just discovered your blog via your book "Pen on Fire" and thought I'd say hi and that I'm looking forward to the Gotham course - I enrolled today.
