This past weekend (Sept. 19-21) I attended the National Writers Workshop in Fort Lauderdale, an annual conference hosted by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Among the speakers (A-Z):

I liveblogged the conference using Twitter and updates can be found by searching greglinch + NWW or NWW.

I’ve posted on Google Docs my notes from a Saturday morning session by Jacqui Banaszynkski, Knight chair in editing at University of Missouri School of Journalism.

I’ll be taking about a month to catch my breath before the next conference, a trip covered by The Miami Hurricane:

Associated Collegiate Press and College Media Advisers conference in Kansas City, Oct. 29 to Nov. 2.

I’ll be flying up on the evening of Oct. 30 and leaving Nov. 2. The Hurricane is sending a total of eight students, plus our adviser.
