Rescheduled from June, the Springfield Regional Arts Council will host Diane Lock as the guest speaker for the Creamery Writers Workshop on Thursday, July 23. Locke is one of the original founders of Ozark Romance Authors Guild and will present a fun workshop on writing true-to-life confession articles. The Creamery Writers Workshop is an outreach program of the Springfield Regional Arts Council and is free and open to all writers, regardless of age or genre. No registration is required. The group meets the 2nd and 4th Thursday each month from 7 to 8:30p.m. in The Creamery across from Hammons Field. If there is a 5th Thursday in the month, writers are welcome to bring in a few pages for critique and open discussion. For further info, call the Springfield Regional Arts Council at 862-2787 (ARTS).
