What's New (last updated Tuesday, June 29, 2004)
Potlatch 13 did indeed happen, and we had a great time. Look for info on next year's Potlatch 14 soon.
Potlatch 13 offers the chance for both serious opinionating and frantic fun; for writers to brainstorm together, for readers to understand writers, for writers to appreciate readers; for fans to enumerate, elaborate, berate, be great; for book buying, outbidding, intense dining, barnstorming in the bar, connecting to the interweb; for dancing in the 'hood, experiencing music, projecting personae; and for giving generously while supporting the Clarion West Writers Workshop.
Saturday, February 21, 2004 -- A partial auction catalog has been posted for the Clarion West benefit auction. Says auction coordinator Kate Schaefer, "This year's auction features many terrific books, manuscripts, and proofs, paintings, jewelry, clothing, and eccentric collectibles. This is only a partial catalog, as I'm frantically cataloging and sorting. I'll still be doing so up to the last minute, as stuff arrives at the convention."
Our intrepid hotel liaison was recently informed that the Best Western Executive Inn has two other groups in the hotel on Friday night. They're using little, if any function space, and will be out by Saturday. What this means, though, is that there aren't many rooms left for Friday night, and those are going fast. If you haven't yet made reservations, you can still get rooms at our rate.
