A Little Coffee with Your Workshop?

Coffeehouse for Writers has an ongoing assortment of online workshops featuring instruction on historical fiction, blogging for profit, writing for children, magazine writing, creating character and more. Reasonably priced to suit the budget, offerings run from two day mini workshops to four and five weeks long.
I was asked to join the "Coffee Crew", and am pleased to announce that I will act as facilitator of one of their newest offerings. Basic Boot Camp for Writers begins Monday, October 11 and is designed to provide a refresher on basic writing and grammar elements for sharp and engaging writing. 
We'll discuss things like homophones, clauses, active versus passive voice, sentence variety, dialogue punctuation and a whole lot more. If you are interested in brushing up on the basics with fun writing prompts and assignments, I'd love to have you along. Hop over to the Coffeehouse to check it out!
Have a wonderful weekend. :)
Blessings, 
Karen

  1. How wonderful!!! I will have to hop across to that link and explore some options. If it's anything like your blog I'm sure it will amazing. I must confess, I misread one of your sentences as "We'll discuss things like homophones..." as..."We'll discuss things like hormones..." Oops - my bad!
    So... I'll put on my glasses and make my way over to the Coffeehouse :)
    Blessings
