I'll take Florida's sunshine any day, so the good news is that I'm digging up more and more writerly things to do around here. (The next thing on Tampa's much-needed list is Seattle's public transit system.)
Currently, the Tampa Jewish Book Festival is happening, with author events through the next week.
I've also heard about two upcoming writer's workshops.
Writing from Within with Nyssa Hangar (a great local poet who was a part of the 2008 Danny Pearl Music Days event I helped organize).
When: November 13 from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
