HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Writers from across the country are descending on the Mark Twain House in Hartford, Connecticut, for an annual weekend of lectures and workshops.

This year’s Writers Weekend will focus on writing for young people to mark the publication of a children’s picture book, “The Purloining of Prince Oleomargarine,” which is based on a fairy tale Samuel Clemens used to tell his daughters.

The weekend also will feature a keynote address and from author and illustrator Jarrett Krosocka (KROW-sock-ah). Other writers will lead sessions on topics such as storytelling techniques, memoirs, essay writing and playwriting.
