Renegade Writing Marathon
The NeWP Group Launched a Renegade Writing Marathon in Downtown Disney after we found out that NWP wasn't hosting one. Richard Louth came with two other people from the Southeastern Louisiana Writing Project, Gigi Brignoni and Wilma Kuhlman came with four other people from the Oxbow Writing Project, and we drew in a few other people as well.
