It will start with a special presentation by Phyllis Karas, Anna Palazzolo Weeks and Kevin Weeks concerning their experiences in collaborative writing projects.  The Keynote Speaker will be Marblehead author Julia Glass and there will be three workshops, on Free Writing exercises and one on Hybrid Memoirs.
