I took a workshop from Colleen and Shaun this weekend at AuthorFest. They are REAL private investigators and Colleen has written COUNTLESS novels!

December 14-21, 2009: Trials 101 ($15.00)
Writing a story with a courtroom scene and need to add some realistic touches? Or perhaps you’re fleshing out a trial attorney, or maybe just want a handle on a few terms for when your protagonist makes a court appearance? This class is an introduction to trials (U.S. legal system), outlining the key players in the courtroom, the history of trials, a few reasons why trials happen (as well as some wrong reasons trials happen, which could provide great story conflict), and ends with several examples of outstanding trials in books and movies. One week, 2 classes, questions answered by email in-between.

I just got this email from my good friend Sage Cohen. She has a new book coming out with Writer’s Digest called, “Writing the Life Poetic” (about how to write poetry) and she’s now offering a class! Check it out:
Have you always wanted to write a poem but didn’t know how to begin? Maybe you’re already writing poetry and want to connect with your muse more often or brush up on your poetic prowess?
I teach a six-week email class called Poetry for the People that takes poetry off of its academic pedestal, making it accessible to and enjoyable for everyone. Feel free to follow the link below to learn more about the class that starts on March 11–and the scholarship I’m offering, with an application deadline of 2/15. (Scroll down to see info about both the class and the scholarship.)
In the coming weeks, I’ll be creating a Poetry for the People group page and will invite you to join. If you join, you’ll get occasional announcements about future classes. If you don’t, you won’t be hearing another peep from me about Poetry for the People!
Peace and poetry,
