I've just sent an introductory email to folks who've already enrolled in my upcoming writing workshop… It's 1/3 full already!
Beginning August 1, 2013, I'll be offering a 4-week short fiction workshop online. It's geared toward people with schedules that might keep them from being able to take a similar workshop in person...
