Dzanc Day Approacheth

Dzanc Books‘s second annual National Workshop Day—also known as Dzanc Day—is coming up on April 9, 2011. Says the event’s site:

Consisting of dozens of creative writing workshops in almost as many cities, Dzanc Day provides local, affordable two-to-four hour sessions led by professional writers, authors, and editors, all open to attendance by the public for a very affordable fee. Sessions are conducted in fiction, poetry, and non-fiction, and are generally suitable for writers of all levels.

Dzanc day helps writers in more ways than one, too: it helps fund Dzanc Books’s charitable endeavors, including the prestigious Dzanc Prize and their Writer in Residence program.

Workshops start at just $30 for two hours of instruction. To find and sign up for one near you, visit the Dzanc Day page and check the map for one in your city. Or, if you’re interested in leading a workshop of your own, email the event organizers at
