Publishing Classes

UPDATE: I’ll be posting my new class schedule on January 31, 2024.

Send me your email address for early-registration perks, and discount!

Every year I teach classes on writing, editing, and publishing.

I’ll post the newest calendar on this Classroom Page so you can see what’s coming up, and get on the early-sign-up list or waiting list, as the case may be!

In 2024, I’ll be offering Master Publishing series again, with a few new twists. We’ll cover:

  • Inside the Publisher’s Braing

  • Crafting The Perfect Ask: Favors, Blurbs, Introductions, and Insider Favors

  • Negotiating Contracts - What Everyone Should Know

  • Proposal Pitches That Land

  • Marketing- What Actually Makes a Difference

  • Audiobooks for the Vets and the Novices: Licensing, Producing, Selling

  • How Do you Know When You Manuscript Ready

  • Publishing Your Newsletter and Blog — The Author’s Essentials

The authors of Santa Cruz Noir, edited by Susie Bright, at Skylight Books in Los Angeles.

I’ll also be running an invite-only Writers’ Get It Done Workshop for those of you who’ve worked with me before, in or out of the classroom. Email me for details: We’ll be working on our crucial to-do lists, the toughest pieces where we need advice, critique, putting on the gas.

Finally, I’m starting a new reading and listening group for those who want a deep dive and some experiential writing assignments on one of my favorites: Red Harvest.

Hope to work and write with you soon!
