Join us for an informative and fun-filled workshop!
Rick Britton - Now an award-winning author, Rick worked for years as a broadcast journalist and travel/feature writer before turning his attention to writing Virginia history. During this time in the journalistic trenches--working under a host of variously talented editors--Rick picked up a number of writing tips that have greatly benefited his history writing.
ADMISSION: FREE for Blue Ridge Writers Chapter Members; Non-Members/Guests $10. Payable at the door.
