Kurt Caswell returns to LCCC Oct. 3-4 for the Literary Connection

The Literary Connection features a four-hour free workshop for writers on Friday, Oct. 3, 9 a.m.-1 p.m., in the LCCC Center for Conferences & Institutes in Cheyenne. Featured writers this year are Kurt Caswell, Ernie Cline and Danielle Pafunda. Great to see Kurt Caswell back at LCCC, where he taught English and writing classes back in the day. LCCC Theatre Director Jason Pasqua will serve as emcee.

Registration deadline has passed, but you can probably show up next Friday and find a seat. LCCC usually offers some fine treats and coffee.

Here's the schedule:

8 a.m.: Bookstore opens. Buy books.

8:30 a.m.: Registration and Breakfast. Lots of good munchies and coffee.

9:15-10:15 a.m.: Danielle Pafunda -- "Loss for Words: How Poetry Helps Us Say What We Mean"

10:30-11:30 a.m.: Kurt Caswell -- "Spiritual Mathematics: Reconsidering Structure in Your Writing"

11:45 a.m.-12:45 p.m. -- Ernest Cline -- "Writing W hat You Know By Writing About What You Love"

Saturday's events at LCCC Conferences & Institutes require a fee. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. and the program starts at 10 a.m. No breakfast, but lunch will be served.

Go to the Friday workshops. But the Saturday events are worth the cost. You get to schmooze with fellow writers and talk to the presenters. Buy books, too.
