Joshua Tree Retreat Scholarship Winner! (And More Fall Classes!)

By Lizzie Vance
This month, we held a contest to offer a full scholarship (an $815 value!) to one lucky writer to our Joshua Tree High Desert Retreat. The submissions were absolutely incredible-- and we wish we could give everyone who entered a scholarship. But alas, there can only be one winner.  Before we tell you who that lucky person is, here are the fantastic classes we have coming up at Writing Pad very soon.  Sign up online or, call 323-333-2954, or email to sign up before the classes are full!

Start This Weekend Thru 10/23:

Start 10/24 - 10/31:

Start in November:
Short and Sweet: The Art of The Short Story (4 Wk)
And now . . . the winner of the Joshua Tree High Desert Writing Retreat is . . . Abby Schachner!!! 

Congratulations, Abby!  We asked Abby where her favorite place is to write.  She said,  "Oooh, my very special, lovely coffee shop.  At some point, I'll O.D. on that place and write at home or another coffee shop, but for now, it's Cafecito Organico.  Lately, I've been donating my pages as their scrap paper. Ripped in quarters, of course, to save myself any embarrassment."

You can read Abby's winning blog entry here.  Thank you so much to our fantastic judges, Antoine Wilson, Janelle Brown, Joe Donnelly, and Pamela Ribon.  Thank you also to everyone who entered. Please do not be discouraged.  Your writing was truly amazing.  You will automatically be entered into the August/September comment contest for a free class at Writing Pad.  Results of that contest will be announced very soon so stay tuned.
