UCLA Writers’ Program Instructors Plan Roman Retreat
World Wide Web— Two UCLA Writers’ Program instructors, Carolyn Howard-Johnson and Eve LaSalle Caram are planning an intimate writers’ retreat in Rome for October, 2010.
Caram was Howard-Johnson’s first instructor in novel writing more than a decade ago. Later the student joined her teacher as a fellow instructor for UCLA’s renowned Writers’ Program and she has now been teaching for nearly there nearly a decade.
The excitement grows. The two have rented a town home near the Trevi fountain in Rome and are inviting writers to join them for a casual week of writing and promotion seminars and tons of Eternal City inspiration. Rome resident Jo Linsdell, a writer and founder of PROMO DAY, the free online conference for writers, will join them to present on the ever-important marketing aspects of the publishing industry.
Caram is the author of three novels and was honored by UCLA for her outstanding teaching. Howard-Johnson is an award-winning poet, novelist, former journalist, and author of the multi award-winning HowToDoItFrugally series of books for writers (www.howtodoitfrugally.com). The pair will tailor seminars to the needs of those who participate.
If participants are interested, Howard-Johnson will lead a tour of nearby Etruscan sites.

Early registration is recommended. Accommodations are very limited. Reach Howard-Johnson for payment details at HoJoNews@aol.com.
