Manny, Amanda, Laura Lee Bahr, Tracy DeBrincat, flb and Sarah Herrington.  Manny talked about working in bookstores for the last ten years and how not to let trends direct your writing. Amanda spoke about the relationship between Magick and Art/Writing. Laura, a screenwriter, actor and director, as well as novelist, discussed the joy of fiction as a way to get into the skins of diverse characters whom you would never be cast to play in a film or on stage. Tracy told us about the difference between writing  short story (more like a sexy fling) and a novel (like a marriage).  And Sarah, a yogi, described the importance of mindfulness in her writing.
