To absolutely no one’s surprise, a lot of people have been told to work from home, or just stay at home. Hopefully, this crazy virus won’t restrict our lives too much longer, but in the meantime, we all have to adjust. Kennesaw State’s branch of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute is no exception, and they’ve made some major changes to accommodate folks who are now more or less forced to stay at home. They’re putting as many of their classes online as possible. That includes two of mine, both of which are scheduled to begin on Wednesday, April 15.
If you live in the Atlanta area, and you’re interested in either writing or publishing, one of my courses might just be what you’re looking for. The first is on novel-writing, the second is on independent publishing. Click on the class names to see the catalog listings. Under normal circumstances, OLLI would charge $119 for each class, but for this term, they’re offering a 20% discount. That’s a pretty nifty deal. (Full disclosure: the novel-writing class has a required textbook, The Naked Novelist! which sells for $15 on Amazon in paperback, or in ebook format for $5. I make autographed copies available in class for ten bucks.)
Since I’ve not met many of you in person, I don’t really know how to portray to you the kind of teacher I am. There is, however, a short video of me which the good folks at Kennesaw State University recorded back in June 2017. They asked me to talk about writing, and they asked me to keep it short. Oy. What an assignment! You can check it out right here. (Be sure to turn your volume up.)
I’m sorry to cut this so short, but I’ve got to go and prepare my notes. I’m new at online learning, too!
Oh, and before I wrap this up, I want to let you know it appears that cover option #4, shown here, garnered the most votes, both from this blog site and an appearance on Facebook. My thanks go to all of you for your input. A final decision hasn’t been made, as I’m waiting on comments from a marketing associate, but I hope to release the book very soon. Once again, thank you, everyone!
