Our yearly Winter Workshop, for One Year Adventure Novel students 18 and older, is a highlight of the year for many of us on staff. Each workshop has its own unique theme that sets the tone for the week. This year’s theme was The Road Through.

Once upon a time, there was a girl. This girl was quiet, shy, super introverted, and really liked
corners. Drawing attention to herself was off limits. She prayed that people would just smile
and keep walking.

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.

The saying goes that hindsight is 20/20, and I’ve certainly had moments of discovery that I wish I could pass back to my younger self. Alas, I am without a functioning time-travel device, hence I wrote up this open letter of sorts instead.
What role do you play in the OYAN community? What kinds of responsibilities do you have?
First of all, I’m a graphic designer. All of the materials available for purchase – workbooks, textbooks, DVD covers, logos, etc. – are designed by me. I am also responsible for the creative aspects (layout and design) of our websites.
