Pure Sea Glass: Writers at the Beach

The Pure Sea Glass Writers Conference begins this Thursday in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Director and novelist Maribeth Fischer has once again put together a magnificent lineup with Richard Bausch, Robert Bausch (yes both of them!), Carolyn Parkhurst, Leslie Pietrzyk, Liam Callanan, Lisa Couturier, Sheri Reynolds, literary agent Candace Furhman, Tin House magazine, and many more. I'll be on panels about point of view and publishing, and giving a morning workshop on travel memoir. (Click here for the complete schedule.) I'll also be reading from Mexico: A Traveler's Literary Companion and Miraculous Air. This is a very unusual writers conference in that the whole thing benefits an important charity: the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation. Back blogging next week.
