Writers’ success story
New book by new UW retreat instructor Julie Tallard Johnson
The Zero Point Agreement/How to Be Who You Already Are (December 2013, Destiny Books), by Julie Tallard Johnson, offers a different approach to self-discovery, one where we create our meaning from within rather than seek it from the outside world. Julie is leading a new section at the June 16-20, 2014 “Write-by-the-Lake Writer’s Workshop & Retreat” in Madison called “Turning Your Life-Changing Experiences into a Book.”
