The third annual Woodstock Writers’ Festival is next week — April 19th through 22nd. The workshops (held in “beautiful homes in Woodstock”) are sold out but there’s still plenty of activities left. Rock ‘n Roll Story Slam, Meet and Greet the Author (Augusten Burroughs, author of Running with Scissors, hilarious book) and songwriting classes.
I’m about two and a half hours away so I’d love to arrive in a VW van with flowers, beads tinkling against the window decked out in tie-dyed clothing, clogs and flowers in my hair. I don’t think it’s that kind of festival but I’ll bet they’ll be some very creative types there.
If I could get away, I’d settle for a drive in my Honda with some bottled water (and a nice glass of Savignon Blanc once I arrive) but I can pretend.
Peace, love and happy writing, y’all.
Jimi Hendrix from Woodstock, circa 1969. Enjoy.
