The book launch party was fantastic! Thanks to everyone who helped make it a success. We sold 58 books (a lot of 2014 editions, a few 2013), celebrated those who submitted work, and had a great time. If you missed the event but would like to purchase a book, we’ll have them at meetings in the BWW Writing Center going forward, and you can also order books online.
Here are the opportunities and announcements for this week. Opportunities

The editors of The Best of the Burlington Writers Workshop 2014 will be reading at Phoenix Books on Thursday, May 1, 2014. Please join us!
Citizen Cider is open across the street from the BWW Writing Center, so that means we can mosey on over there after workshops and keep the tradition of after-workshop drinks alive!
