Gonna be talking bout the creation of WEZMORE to the students at HP - my alma mater.  It is always one of my faves of the year!

At the heart of the festival are over 60 workshops between students and accomplished novelists, journalists, poets, songwriters, and playwrights. Also, at a student-run open-mic night, students perform their own works. A writing contest and special awards breakfast recognizes outstanding student works of poetry, fiction, and narrative non-fiction.
