I recently had the chance to take portraits of writers at the Burlington Writers Worksop. One of them was Peter Biello the author, radio host and the head of The Burlington Writers Workshop.
About the BWW:
The Burlington Writers Workshop’s mission is to provide writers with free learning opportunities that help them develop as artists and professional writers. We provide as many as five workshops each week in Burlington, Vermont. We also host occasional panel discussions, readings, and schmoozing opportunities with experienced, professional writers. To ensure access for all, everything we do is free of charge.
Our mission is also to promote the work of our members. To be a member, all you have to do is sign up at Meetup.com. It’s a simple give-to-get system. You must provide feedback to your fellow writer before you can expect any promotion or feedback.
