PLEASE BE ADVISED - ERROR IN DATES IN THE BROCHURE
Well, something always gets by us, and this year it was a couple of erroneous dates. Chris Doda and Lorna Goodison's workshops are on Saturday, but the date in the brochure should read November 2. Stephanie Bolster's workshop is on Sunday, but the date in the brochure should read November 3. Our apologies for the confusion!
