In the second installment of a monthly series, member Marvin Mayer writes in with his experiences attending the 2010 Highlights Foundation Writers Workshop.

Member Marvin Mayer Last month, I shared with you the “experience” that was Chautauqua. I listed the various individual workshops and general sessions, and talked about the daily social interactions with editors, publishers, multi-published and often award-winning authors, and other registrants.

In this article, I want to focus on specifics of some of those gifted people who were there to mentor us. Where else but at a workshop can “unknown” authors like me get to visit with people of this stature?

And when I say visit, I mean face-to-face, one-on-one, no limitations time with the “pros” in the industry.
