After three highly successful Superstars Writing Seminars—Las Vegas in 2012, Salt Lake City in 2011, and Pasadena in 2010—we are putting together next year’s event. Superstars 2013 will be in Colorado Springs, Colorado, May 14–16 at the historic Antlers Hotel at the base of Pike’s Peak. (This is the place where Katherine Bates wrote the song “America the Beautiful” in 1895—so it already has a creative history, not to mention a spectacular setting.)
