It's traveling time again. I'll be heading to first to Vermilion tonight for the semi-finals of the West Shore Conference 8th grade boys basketball tournament. If the Rockets win, I'll sadly have to miss the championship game tomorrow night.
Tomorrow I'm off to Columbus for a KnowledgeWorks Foundation writing workshop. Looking forward to reconvening with fellow writers across the state to discuss our writing about education reform.
I'm home for February and then it's off again in March to Anniston, Ala., for a Narrative Writing Workshop featuring Gay Talese, Rick Bragg and Tom Hallman Jr. It's back to Indy in late March and again in mid-May and early June. There may be an April trip to Detroit.
Most of this traveling is, of course, on behalf of SPJ. If you haven't visited the Web site recently, I highly recommend you do. Freelancers will want to participate in the new Freelance Database, which took me 18 months and getting on staff to make a reality. But there you have it.
