Laurie Schnebly Campbell: New Year, New You

January 2 – 26, 2018

Whether it’s the first rejection, the 50th-book slump, or just not getting the story you want, frustration is part of every writer’s life. For some, it’s a nuisance; for others, it’s the end of a career. For anyone determined to make 2018 a Better Writing Year, this class offers both practical and psychological techniques for dealing with rejection, writer’s block, frustration, motivation, and other issues that keep writers from loving their craft.

Class runs January 2 – 26, 2018 and will be conducted via email in a Yahoo group.  Cost is $20 for SRW members, $25.00 nonmembers.

Catherine Chant: Writing the Romantic Novella (Starts March 4)

Class runs 2 weeks, beginning March 4, 2018

In this workshop you will learn what a novella is, how it’s more than word count that separates it from a novel, and how to successfully craft one of your own.
Lesson topics include: Scope and Pacing, Character Development, Conflict, Plot and Format.
At the end of the workshop, you will have a brief outline of a novella you can start working on this year, a list of prospective publishers to submit your work to, and some tips for self-publishing your novella at Amazon, if you prefer to go the indie route.
The workshop includes exercises with every lesson designed to strengthen the concepts discussed and individual feedback from the instructor.
