Elizabeth Snyder, Haystack Coordinator, will be joined by Dangerous Writers Steven Allred and Joanna Rose, and by Susan Fletcher, Margaret Bechard, and Linda Zuckerman of the Children's Book Conference, representing just a sample of the many Haystack creative writing workshops this summer.

Then the writing teachers will describe their Haystack offerings.
