Only two days to register for Studies in Plotting: Focus on Mystery and Horror! Come armed with your favorite scary or suspenseful novel. We’ll discuss what “grabs” us about these books, the components of a great mystery and what ALL writers can learn about plotting from this format. For grades 7 to adult, this is part of a free writing workshop series being offered at the Woodinville Public Library. The link to register is here.

Before spending a year of your life writing that children’s book, be sure you have a plan for success. Join me for Children’s Writing – a Plan for Success at Fairhaven Village Inn in Bellingham. In this class I’ll lead discussions on creating concepts, choosing which ones are viable, developing them into useable synopses and organizing yourself before sitting down to write.
Registration is through Whatcom Community College
