<![CDATA[Hi friends! There seems to be so much happening lately, I can barely keep up! I am so grateful that I was able to participate in the Alchemy for Writers 101 event last Sunday, held at a landmark, The Alchemist Theater in Bay View, Wisconsin. There were over 50 writers gathered, and my presentation was on (guess what?) Flash Fiction! I have to thank Mike Timms for all of his hard work in making this event come alive, as well as Sheila Julson for asking me to participate. And a nod to community spirit among writers! Alchemy for Writers | Project Empty Space Here are some other current happenings: 1) I’m reading with the uber-talented Jason Lee Norman on his America’s Book Tour next Monday, July 23rd at 7 p.m. at the Riverwest Public House, 815 E.

I bet your presentation on Flash Fiction was fantastic for the workshop you taught last weekend. Those participants were lucky to have you. Keep up the great work.
I am blown away by how much time you devote to others, Robert. It is truly inspiring.
Wish I lived in Milwaukee to hear your reading on Monday night, Robert. Have fun and break a leg!
Thanks for naming names!
This will help me understand more about writing, and I can’t thank you enough.
This site is great. Regards, Carol E. Fanger
