Wow that is a lot in such a short period of time! I am going to try to be at as many of these as possible but I think I am already tired just writing them all!
I am also trying to start a weekly chat for writers via the Ning, any opinions on day of the week or time? I can also host one on BlogTv where I can video myself leading the chat and you guys can all chat in text sidebar? Thoughts anyone?
Continue to have a great week!
Hello Video Wednesday lets get to some linkage!
First up is this weeks issue of Shape of a Box where we have a short story by Aly Robalino.
Next up is me launching Heron into the world. You’ll see what I’m talking about
And how about another writerly person?
And last but not least is not a video but some news.
- I started a writers Ning, social networking site, where we can meet up to chat, discuss issues in forums, start private groups, host classes etc. It is Folded Words - sharing words. Join us!
- For those in the Charlotte area I mentioned my August 15th class, see classes tab, but I’m also in the process of updating all my sites for my next class: Caught! Capturing Moments with Cameras and Keyboards. You do not have to have a camera or be a photographer to take this class. I will be using the language of photography to shine a new line on the writing process. The course is $100 and will last from Sept 1 – Sept 29. Weekly assignments and discussion will be conducted and work (any genre) will be critiqued by moi for you. What a steal! More details to follow but reg is open until August 25th, course will be 100% online and a great deal of phone! payment via paypal to jessie.carty(at)gmail.com. Maybe I’ll throw in a copy of my chapbook to the first person who signs up? hmmmm
Have a great day everyone! I’ve got more class prep to do
