Hosted by Magic Hat Brewing Company in South Burlington, Vermont, "Ale Tales" features work by Martin Bock, Cynthia Close, Dede Cummings, and Sarah Jackson. Special thanks to Hotel Vermont for sponsoring this event.
In this panel discussion, two authors (Jon Clinch and Jan Elizabeth Watson), a literary agent and publisher (Dede Cummings), and editor (Jessica Swift Eldridge) share their insights on the world of publishing. How does one find a publisher and audience? When is the right time to seek an audience? What digital platforms must we build? Why publish at all, when the world is already inundated with books? Moderated by Peter Biello. More information at burlingtonwritersworkshop.com
Let's say you're a fiction writer and your protagonist has a disease. How do you make sure your character is three dimensional and not just a collection of symptoms? We speak with Burlington writer Jim Gamble about his solutions to this problem.

years. Whenever a poem comes up for discussion in our workshops, she has
