If you’re a writer in Hawaii or need of a reason to visit, William Bernhardt (the guy who taught the 60 index card outlining method that I use) is teaching a few workshops in Honolulu and Maui in late January/early February. He’s also teaching in Oklahoma, but unless you’re already in Oklahoma I figure Hawaii in winter might be preferable. Happy writing!
