Workshop Leader

Lorelei Armstrong

I am a novelist, screenwriter, and enthusiastic reader of everything. I’ve had one novel published and self-published another, and am delighted to captain a pirate workshop after (almost) twenty years coming to the SBWC. Bring anything. Bring it in any state. Bring yourself in any state. Just come for a listen. Or for a snack. We are friendly pirates.[More]
