My friend Trai Cartwright is the “writing for media” guru in our area of Colorado (that’s the Front Range from Denver north to Fort Collins), and I’m taking the liberty of passing on her list of super-fantastic workshops, classes, cons, etc. etc. Especially note the Explorati Teen Camp if you have a teen writer in your network.

Wish we had any of that in our area. You are blessed as a writer.
I do feel blessed, Alex. There are lots of places my husband and I might have ended up after retirement, but we just accidentally dropped into writers’ heaven. I love it here.
