  1. Woo hoo! Many thanks for sharing.

    Even though the contest is over, there are many, many free activities for writers to take part in during the festival. Most importantly are the writing workshops. They are being conducted by world class writers and publishers. This is a huge event for Uniontown readers and writers–next year it will be held in Philly. Please stop down in 112 and see me if you have any questions.

    Thanks again!
