he rich get richer, as they say, but not in the Mitt Romney stashing his cash in the Cayman Islands kind of way.
Rather, we’re talking about the Big Sur Writing Workshop for young adult fiction writers, which’ll take place March 2-4 in Seaside, CA, and the fact that our already-awesome faculty is now getting awesomer with the addition of Brandy Rivers.
She’s a literary manager and producer who runs the book-to-tv/film department at Magnet Management. If you’ve seen her name around the web recently, it was probably in connection to Myra McEntire’s HOURGLASS, which she recently sold to Fox on behalf of Holly Root at Waxman Literary Agency.
You can read up more about her below; we’re still accepting registrations, so call 831-667-2574. Oh, and the Facebook thingie here too.
Bask in the bountifulness that is the Big Sur Writing Workshop! It’s a far more certain thing than expecting Mitt to release his tax returns.
