Want to learn to write a pro review?!

A hands-on workshop for anyone who wants to write what they think—in a few strong sentences. This workshop will be valuable to those who want to write reviews, but the same techniques can be used for clear, succinct blog postings. Patty Osborne (check out her blog on GEIST), a regular contributor to Endnotes, will lead participants through the process of honing in on what needs to be said in a short review and what is the best way to say it. Bring along a book you want to review, a pen or pencil, and a pad of paper. By the end of the workshop you will have written a short review!
