New Class Starting August 1st

I teach classes at Moore/Norman Technology center. On Tuesday, August 1st, the first WRITING THE ANTHOLOGY class begins.

In the class, the students receive guidance in constructing stories, researching background, creating characters, learning about plot and genre and how to submit work to publishers.

I've taught this class before and have lately started using www.cafepress.com to publish the finished collection of short stories FOR FREE. The book is then placed on the site for sale to anyone who wants a copy. They're published print-on-demand. We've done this one time before:

The class will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays for four weeks, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. If you want more information, go to:

I've been teaching writing classes for almost 18 years. I really enjoy getting to know the students. And there's an old adage that's really true: If you want to truly learn something, teach it. My students ask me questions I never even think of on my own. Over the years, I believe they've helped me as much as I've helped them.
