I really had a blast at Web Writer's Weekend 2003. It was quite the experience on many levels.

So a group of my friends and I have been conspiring to do it all over again this fall!

"This year's national JournalCon will occur in Washington, DC. We don't want to steal their glory. It's just that Austin has such a concentration of web writers that we thought a workshop might be of interest to the community. As a result, seven of us began meeting a few times a month to locate a venue, set a date, and create programming.

We want to offer a workshop that will generate interest among local online writers, and so we're calling upon them for their input. The steering committee has designed a survey with the intention of gathering suggestions and ideas, which will help us create programming that will appeal.

If you live in Austin and write on the web, please stop by and participate in the survey. We do appreciate your assistance." - Kathryn

We would especially appreciate your time to take our survey
