Troy, I just heard back from the director of NCI. Thanks for posting this info. I had so much fun when I went to the Hurston/Wright Writer's Workshop. This seems interesting.
She mentioned there is also a Summer program.

I can't make the short notice, that's why she told me about the Summer program.
I have a huge school book signing this week:-)
What the heck is Women's History Month, I had never heard of it? I also will take part in that.
