By Gabrielle de Waal, Staff Writer After nearly two months of effort, the 2017 OYAN Summer Workshop Journal is finally complete!
By Jim Viebke, Guest Contributor My journey to the 2017 Winter Workshop began seven years earlier when I first started using The One Year Adventure Novel (or “OYAN”). This is not just a story about the Winter Workshop, but also a story about how the workshop played an important part in my journey as a writer.
Compiled by Staff One Year Adventure Novel students often talk about the Summer Workshop as their "Rivendell" (from The Lord of the Rings)—a place of peace and restoration where the arts are in their rightful place. The Winter Workshop, then, is like Lothlorien, a quieter and more intimate haven of the elves, as a student pointed out this year.
