One-Day Fiction Writing Seminar . . . Registration Now Open!
Most of you know I teach writing at conferences. I receive a lot of positive feedback from the classes I teach and attendees often ask if I’ll ever host my own fiction seminar. Well, here it is. The details are below.
I researched other similar one-day seminars and intentionally set the price-point below them. That being said, I don’t want a day like this to be a burden to anyone if he or she really wants to attend but can’t afford the full price. If you want to come but the price is an issue please just email me and we’ll work something out. Trust me, being a one-income family of six I’m no stranger to financial difficulties. I understand and want to help.
Also, check out my new coaching site for writers. It’s not complete but you’ll get the iea.
SAVE THE DATE!!
Saturday, September 20th. 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Hi, Mike. This sounds like a great event. I wish I lived close enough to attend. Thanks for the invitation to those of us still on the other side of the publication door.
Mike–you are worth WAY more than this! We will be on a trip during September and October, otherwise I’d be signing up. I’ll share this info with the writers I come into contact with.
I’ve not been as active on your group, but do stay up with your notes to the group, and I continue to pray for you and your family.
Commit all that you do to the Lord, trust Him to help you do it, and He will. Psalm 37:5
