  1. Sounds like a great workshop, Mindy! Dark and Stormy weekend ahead for sure; and you couldn’t ask for better weather. I can’t attend the workshop, but it sounds wonderful. I love the idea of thinking about picture books and flash fiction in the same creative space. Thanks for mentioning Junk! Write on, girl.
