Upcoming offerings include the Writing F&SF class, the Editing 101 class, Establishing an Online Presence for Writers, the First Pages workshop, Flash Fiction, and Literary Techniques for Genre Fiction.
These classes are taught online, using Google+ Hangouts, which has proven robust and easy to use. You do need a computer with a microphone at a minimum, but headphones are suggested and a webcam is best so people can see you participate. Each class is limited to eight or nine students, depending on whether or not there will be a guest speaker.
Why take a class with me? As both writer and editor, I bring a focus that lets me advise you from both sides of the desk. My experience as the fiction editor of award-winning Fantasy Magazine as well as short story collections and anthologies combined with the fact that I’m a working, selling writer helps me provide you with solid, up-to-date market advice for both online and print publishing.
My teaching experience includes the Johns Hopkins University, Towson State University, and Bellevue College and I’ve studied with John Barth, Stephen Dixon, Octavia Butler, and Connie Willis, to name just a couple of people I’ve had the pleasure of learning from. Former students can testify that I’m an active, engaged, and entertaining instructor who helps you get motivated to write while providing feedback on your work. See what they’ve said about the class.
