February 14-16, 2020 - Workshop Leader at Southern California Writers’ Conference

Fischer has been attending SCWC for 10 years and is excited this year to share what she has learned from the writing and publishing of The Advocacy. There are many seasoned workshop leaders, with multiple topics every hour to choose from. Come Presidents’ Day Weekend and enjoy the fine company of writers. Nothing makes Fischer happier! She’ll be leading these workshops:


Separating Chaff from Wheat: Writing Fiction from Real-Life Experience


The Whole Shebang: What it Takes to Bring Your Book to Press

Book Signing at California Bioresources Alliance Symposium

Fischer attended the California Bioresources Alliance Symposium in Sacramento on November 14-15, 2019. She felt heartened by the incredibly well-informed researchers, composters, consultants, and regulators working to formulate sound policy for the management of California’s organics. Fischer enjoyed visiting with old friends and signing a few copies of The Advocacy. She applauds Chad White for “a brilliant job orchestrating this year’s symposium!” and extends her thanks to the Association of Compost Producers for sharing their table.
