Josh’s Schedule

My Calendar

I’m teaching four classes in two different places this winter. Here’s the lowdown:

On Tuesdays, from January 9 through February 21, I’ll be conducting a Writer’s Workshop at ELM, the Enrichment of Life Movement. Classes are held at the First United Methodist Church in Marietta. Mine runs from 10:45AM to 11:45AM (and conversations often spill over into lunch in the Family Life Hall).

On Wednesdays, from January 17 through March 7, I’ll be teaching three classes at OLLI, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, hosted by Kennesaw State University, in the KSU Center on Busbee Drive in Kennesaw, GA. I’ll teach the following classes: Publish Your Own Book (10:00-11:30), Write Your Novel Now (12:00-1:20) and Learn Fiction Writing from a Pro (2:00-3:30).

Come April, in addition to my ELM and OLLI classes, I’ll be teaching How to Write Historical Fiction at the Booth Art Museum in Cartersville, Ga. Dates and times to be announced.

I have numerous speaking engagements scheduled as well. If you’re interested in having me as a guest speaker at your club or organization, I’d love to chat with you. I offer a 30-45 minute presentation called “Write a Novel in 30 Minutes.” It’s a highly interactive program about what goes into a work of fiction. As part of the process, I will direct the audience to create a genre novel from scratch. The process involves music, laughter, and a good bit of instruction you won’t find anywhere else.

I promise to leave Godzilla at home!
