<![CDATA[I'm teaching a weekend online workshop April 28-20, called Cross-Genre Deep Dive, hosted by WordTango, the online writing community. I had the terrific pleasure of meeting Liz Pettie and Jen Kircher- Carr at the AWP Conference in Washington D.C. recently. We didn’t go swimming, or even diving. But life can take you into deep waters, or leaping, plummeting from various heights, for innumerable other reasons: debt, accidents, secretive meetings. The list is endless! If you are unfamiliar with my writing, I’ve just published my 5th book, FUNHOUSE (Unknown Press). It’s a good example of cross-genre work in one book: flash fiction, prose poetry, and longer short stories. (See the tab “My Books” for more information.) I hope you will consider taking the WORDTANGO course. More information is here: http://us11.campaign-archive1.com/?u=fc8698610dd752def107a548c&id=72030255b0 Please let us know if you have any questions. And thanks, Kathy Fish, for the solid recommendation. Happy Writing!]]>

Hope to join you – I am somewhat of a newbie.
All levels are welcome, Mary Ellen! I hope you choose to join us!
Looking forward to it, Robert. One suggestion: I’ve done several of these Word Tango weekends now and — first of all, they’re great — however, the writing assignments are typically set at a 750-word limit. It’s my ever-so-humble opinion that in such a short time frame, that’s too long. First, given that many words, I’ve seen people write themselves into a whole lot of trouble, and second it becomes hard to have enough time for classmates to read all the pieces and give feedback. I’ve long thought that a 500-word limit would be much more manageable. Just at thought. I’ll be there ready to rock’n’ roll whatever you decide. – Jayne
I appreciated the 500 mark, too.
The 500 mark was perfect! Thanks for the idea, Jayne.
Enjoyed your class very much, Robert! I learned a lot in a brief time, from your lectures, classmates and my dive! Want to thank you for your kind guidance. Would love to join you all in Santa Feel, but not in the cards this time, unfortunately. Hope to see you WordTango again! All the best, Mary Ellen
Mary Ellen, I truly enjoyed having you in the Word Tango course. I hope we can cross paths again and again, whether in cyberland or in “REAL LIFE!” Take care for now, Robert
