We are excited to announce that we have confirmed our speaker lineup for  the 2015 Cascade Writers Workshop, July 23-26. We’re looking  forward to bringing you a full lineup of workshops, classes, and  one-on-one sessions.

July 22-26, 2015 Workshop in Kent, WA.

VENUE: The original venue was misrepresented to us in terms of ADA accessibility and available rooms, forcing us to find new grounds.  As a result, we will be changing our location to allow for full accessibility and a wider range of options for our attendees. Our new location offers free wifi, breakfast, and shuttle from the airport, as well as accessibility and an excellent nightly rate. We’re also much closer to the airport, with several excellent transportation options. For more information on reservations and location, please check out the Ramada Inn in Kent, WA.

In addition to these changes, we are unrolling an expanded calendar of events, with exciting speakers and collaborations with other local SF events.

Thank you for sticking with us, and if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us at any point, at info@cascadewriters.com.

One last thing… If you could all help us out and share events and posts on any of the social media platforms, that would be truly helpful! Facebook is now proud to announce that their reach is completely inorganic, meaning we have to pay to reach even the smallest numbers. The only way around this is to have people sharing our posts, retweeting, etc… We rely a lot on word of mouth, and despite our new partnerships with some libraries, every little bit helps!

Best,
Alaina Ewing
President, Cascade Writers.
