Introduce Yourself - Tell Us About Your Courses  - 
 
Thanks for the invite to the group. I'm Sally Apokedak and I'm a literary agent. I love to teach and I think teaching is needed when I judge by the loads of bad submissions I get in my inbox. 

So I'm looking into teaching online. I have sold online courses on a large-ish writing site and made some good money. But those courses ran for a set period and they were limited enrollment. So I'm checking out ways to offer courses to a greater number of students and to let them go through the courses at their own speed. 

I'm hoping to put up some "how to write novels" courses in the next week or so. I thought they'd be up by now but I'm finding that there is a lot to learn before I can get them up. And since I have a demanding day job, I'm pressed for time and bleary eyed. So...I don't know how much I'll be able to contribute here, but I hope to learn and to be able to give back someday.

My husband, an Alaskan Native man, got to celebrate Christmas twice every year. He celebrated on December 25th with the rest of the country, and again on January 7th. Russian Christmas. He was Russian Orthodox and in his church they used the Old Julian Calendar. So they started celebrating the
