Josh’s Schedule

My Calendar

I’m taking some time off from teaching this summer. It seems that all the editing jobs I agreed to suddenly need to be finished right away, if not sooner. So, it looks like I won’t be doing much writing of my own for awhile. My teaching schedule in the fall could be quite a challenge with classes in Marietta, Kennesaw, Canton, and Cartersville. I’ll be teaching short fiction, novel writing, memoir, and independent publishing. If you see something you’re interested in, drop me a line and I’ll fill you in on the tentative plans.

As always, I’ve got a number of speaking engagements lined up, but there’s always room for more. If you’re interested in having me as a guest speaker at your school, 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!
