Open to any writer who has attended other Chautauqua, Manhattanville College or Highlights workshops with Patti. (See www.highlightsfoundation.org/workshops)

October 29-November. A Master Class: The Search for Voice, at The Barn, Highlights Foundation Conference Center.  In the rush to publish, writers often miss the opportunity to stop and take time to bring their writing to a higher level.  Nothing is more important than discovering Voice.  During this workshop experienced writers will join Patti in that search, coming to language and expression in bold and original ways.
