Description:
The opportunities for writers to publish can be very confusing. Self-publishing, vanity press, co-operative publishing, traditional publishing - what are the options and choices? And how will the choice you make affect your own writing career? In this workshop we'll look at the various publishing models, their pros and cons, and determine which ones would suit the needs of each student in the class. Krawiec has been involved in the publishing scene since the 1970s. He is founder of Jacar Press, which has published established writers such as Kathryn Stripling Byer and Dorianne Laux, as well as first timers. Jacar's anthology, Resisting Arrest Poems to Stretch the Sky was named one of the year’s best by review journals in Canada and the U.S. His own work appears in the U.S., Europe and South America.

Description:
Gwen Diehn, a lifelong artist and educator, decided in mid-2013 to document her drawings and take on the challenge of drawing ten thousand things. Initially inspired by the statement - “You cannot learn to draw until you have drawn the ten thousand things” – over four years Diehn worked through 50+ handmade journals which she carried with her everywhere ¬– on local hikes, at family events, meetings, and while traveling overseas. Diehn is always involved in creating works in print, book arts and sculpture and phases of her works in progress are also recorded in the ten thousand things. The drawings are done with simple pen and ink and watercolors – all easily transported. As a whole this entire project portrays continual growth in learning and observing – even for a highly accomplished artist. All of the journals will be on view as well as many reproductions of the drawings. The artist will speak briefly about her work at the opening. A catalog featuring many of the illustrations will be available for sale at the opening reception.
