Finally, a workshop for artists of all disciplines. It’s for writers who want to be published for the first time or published more often in more competitive venues. It’s for musicians who want to perform for the first time, or who want to go from smaller San Antonio venues to larger ones, or to Austin, Houston, or beyond. It’s also for actresses, actors, comedians, dancers, visual artists. How can we get bloggers or podcasters to pay attention? How can we help more people become aware of our work? Attendees will leave inspired with concrete ideas to take their art further.
Ken Waldman is a seasoned teacher of writing and a performer. He combines original poetry, old-time string-band music, and smart storytelling for a performance uniquely his. Since 1995 he’s appeared from the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage to the Dodge Poetry Festival to the Woodford Folk Festival (Queensland, Australia). His 20 books consist of 16 poetry collections, a memoir, a creative writing manual, a kids’ book, and a newly published novel, Now Entering Alaska Time. His nine CDs include two for children.
