When will another workshop of this nature be held? This is a perfect platform for starting a formal writer's mentoring program so that aspirant writers can learn from the professionals.

Good question! I do one or two fiction workshops a year at Capilano University here in North Vancouver, but we haven't seen as much interest in book-length nonfiction. This is frustrating--especially since, for an unknown writer, a well-conceived nonfiction book has a better chance of publication than a novel.
