Two Illinois historic sites are hosting workshops for aspiring writers.

Springfield's Dana-Thomas House and Vachel Lindsay Home will feature a total of five two-hour fiction and poetry writing sessions throughout October, November and December. The sessions are being taught by instructors from the University of Illinois at Springfield and Benedictine University and organized by the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency and Vachel Lindsay Association. Topics include "Facing Fear in Your Fiction" and "Bad Fruitcake, Burnt Turkey, Good Stories"-- a workshop about turning holiday tension into good writing. Sessions cost $10 with a student rate of $5.
