New Venture - Personal Workshop Offered

Lookee, lookee!  I've updated my blog with some new pages.  Check out the bio, with 2 handy sizes -- a short one for those with Ron-size attention spans, and a longer for those as studious as Hermione. :-)  I've also set up pages to list my presentations and publications.

Why all this tidying?  Many people have e-mailed me asking if I can present my Writer's Guide to Harry Potter workshop sooner than October or closer than Florida. Alas, as I'm sure you can understand, with juggling work, writing, and family, my travel and workshop time is limited.

However, as I've been teaching the class both in person and online for over 5 years, I've long had the course materials complete in written form. In fact, the total month-long online workshop comprises 370 pages of 13 lessons, including charts, tables, and loads of examples from all the books. It suddenly occurred to me -- why can't I offer this workshop direct to you through this blog?

I can! I may not be able to offer the extensive back-and-forth question-and-answer to each individual that is possible with a full class, but I can provide the exact same written materials and answer a few very specific questions pertaining to your own work.

Because I don't want to clog up the main thrust of my blog with a sales pitch, I'm setting up a separate page to list what I'm offering. If you're interested in a more extensive analysis than blog posts can provide of what we can learn from JK Rowling by studying her craft, then check out the workshop page.

Or, contact me about presenting the workshop at your writers group or conference.


  1. What a fabulous idea! I can't wait to get a copy. Thanks for offering!

  2. This is GREAT!

  3. Thanks Astrid and NCcoastgrl! I'm in NC too, just not the coast. :-)

  4. Wow, talk about the deal of a lifetime! Thank you!

  5. Awesome Susan! That's great. I think it's good that you offer on your blog too!

  6. Thanks Kat and Laura. This is new to me, but we'll see how it goes.

  7. What a fantastic idea. You've inspired me to do a Potter focus in my class next year.

  8. Wonderful, Leslie! Your 5th graders will love it, especially if you show them how she plotted her clues. :-)
