Howdy! I'm scrapping what I was going to put up for the letter "C" in favor of a much more exciting idea, I hope...
I'll post any and all writing-oriented upcoming events for the month of May (since April is already upon us, I'm skipping it) where I am now and in my home state--that I know of, at least.Will post by state first to keep it navigable.
Those of you who feel the urge upon you, comment below as a way of updating the list; I'm sure I'm missing some great events! But please be sure to include the State, City, Location (as in business or address), Title and Date. That way everyone who swings by this page can get a feel for what's hip and happening or whatever it is people say.
