Creative writers, hone your craft and enjoy a day of workshops and fellowship at the 9th annual WordSpring creative writing conference at Butte College on Saturday, April 25!

Pat Hull will guide a session in songwriting.
Kyleen Bromley, Lia Deromedi, Finn Kraemer, and Ty Moore offer fiction writing workshops ranging from beginning level to advanced.
