Writing Improvement Month 2013 Draws to a Close

UFOP Starbase118 Writing Improvement Month 2013The final week of the Starbase 118 Writing Improvement Month was pretty amazing. We got to talk to not just one or two award winning authors, but three! If you missed the hour-long video chats, where we got to ask whatever questions we wanted of these authors, make sure your visit the archives of these events to review them in full!
