Shameless Promotion

I try not to shamelessly promote stuff. Really, I do. Since taking over as co-coordinator of my RWA chapter's online classes, I've added a section on my sidebar with a listing of our upcoming courses. But for the most part, that has been it.

Until now. In November we're having two classes and both of them are going to be terrific! First up is an 8-day class headed up by Intimate Moments and Nocturne author, Nina Bruhns, along with several of her Harlequin cohorts. It focuses on the differences in the lines, and the nuances which aren't really relayed by the "guidelines" you see on the site. Along with secrets to breaking into the lines, including secrets of MIRA.

We're also having Amy Knupp's husband, Justin Knupp as a guest instructor. He's giving a class on websites. He'll be talking about EVERYTHING you need to know. From design, to planning, to hosting. He'll also talk about programs for you to do your own design and what to look for in a designer. It's a class not to be missed.

And since they're two really stellar classes, I couldn't resist blogging about them. If you want more info, you can visit the Lowcountry RWA online classes web page or email our coordinators (yes, that would be me and my pal Dorothy).

I've asked before, but I'll ask again... Are there any online classes you've taken or someone you know has that was just great?

My very first RWA meeting at my (now old) chapter was on websites.

I think taking some kind of class on websites should be mandatory for all authors!

Both classes sound great!

Those classes sound awesome. I took an online editing class, and I really liked it. I learned alot and the format really worked for me.

I think I did a class for Lowcountry RWA last year? Or the year before? With a group of SIM authors. I can't remember, LOL. It's a great chapter. Nina's really great, too.

These classes sound great, April! Especially the website one. I think I'm going to take it cos I have some basic knowledge but I'd like more...

I took an online editing class and a query letter/how to get an agent class recently that was really good.

I've taken a couple great online classes the last year. Writing the selling synopsis with (i'm hoping this is right) Laura Schelby Campbell? And Suzanne's workshops are always great :D

Sounds like your chapter's putting on some great workshops :)
