Here is full disclosure. This blog is about the classes I'm teaching this fall. My feelings won't be hurt if this doesn't interest you and you stop reading. But, if you know anyone who is interested in developing his or her writing skills, please share this blog with them. Friends, family (particularly teens-- see the third event) I'd love to see any of them there!
First, I'm leading a pre-conference workshop on marketing your book to teachers at the SCBWI-Carolinas meeting. My workshop is on Friday afternoon but the main events will continue the rest of the weekend. Take a look at the brochure and you'll be hooked. If you live in Charlotte you won't have to pay for a hotel!
Second, I'm teaching "Writing for Children" at Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte. Beginning on September 15, we'll be meeting for eight consecutive weeks. See the course description for more details, or email me.
And last (but certainly not least!) I'm teaching the teen track at the AnAuthor World conference in Greenville, S.C. While I'm enjoying leading teens into creating an imaginative short story, adult writers will be learning more about characterization, writing nonfiction and mysteries, as well as how to use social media to market yourself.
I hope one of these will interest you or someone you know. Thanks for passing this post along.
Now, if you'll excuse me...I have some prep work to do!
