Here's some features I'll add to their lists:
- A trip to the Bite for delicious fried treats (hopefully)!
- A group Shakespeare performance fueled by beer! Hilarity Will Ensue! (I guarantee it).
- Late nights writing, and talking about writing, and being incredibly nerdy with other sci-fi people who love writing.
And if you're lucky, Bear will take you out to the woodshed (well, beach) and give your writing a good scouring with the Brillo pad. It will be worth it. Trust me.
VP is a writerly-life-changing experience. I will be processing what I learned there for, well, years to come. I have a great new tribe of writer friends. I know it made me a better writer (or will, eventually). I am ever so glad I went.

It was indeed the workshop I was looking for.
