Working On Workshops

Working On Workshops

Didn’t do much today except spend a bunch of time working on online workshops. I want to have the January and February online workshop schedule announced for those taking the workshop option in the Kickstarter subscription drive for Fiction River. (Option for one workshop or three workshops starting from November forward.)

And also we are going to be adding in one more new workshop this fall, in October, the last one for the fall.

Basically, the new workshops will be called Point of View and will be how to use them correctly, when, and how to use viewpoints to your best advantage, and so much more. Viewpoint is one of the most power tools of a fiction writer and one of the most misunderstood. Full description in the next few days when we get the January and February workshop schedule set.

And yes, you can sign up now. I have put it on the list below, but not anywhere else. Limited to 12 in October.
