November/December 2011 classes at the Coffeehouse for Writers begin Monday, November 14. Most of you know that I am the instructor for Basic Boot Camp for Writers there. FYI: writers at any level are welcome to join Boot Camp, which is a refresher of the basics, the in between stuff, and a whole lot more, with interesting and fun prompts and assignments. Check out the other great Coffeehouse offerings, too. Classes are reasonably priced and there's something for everyone!
I am taking a break next week. Will be back on or about November 14.
What are you doing this weekend?
Thanks for coming by,
