Having an exciting time taking the Master Class in fiction writing at UCLA! It’s a nine-month, 30-week (with residency). Very proud to have been chosen (only 8 per year are chosen).
I’ll be at the SCBWI summer conference in August. See everyone there!
Update: It was a great conference with an spectacular artist showcase. So glad to have seen so many new and old acquaintances.
The 2017 SCBWI Summer Conference this year is going to be packed with amazing speakers and panels. Agents like Jennifer Laughran and Alexandra Penfold, as well as editors like Bethany BuckZareen Jaffery, and Kendra Levin will be there. Keynotes by awesome writers like Kwame Alexander and Laurie Halse Anderson.
Even better, it’s at the JW Marriot at LA Live! I can’t wait and will attend. Dates are July 7-9. Look forward to seeing friends, writers, and editors there.

Do you like to write and would love to do it for a living? Try technical writing. No need to be a ‘techie’ or scientific guru. With practice, you can find out how technical writing is a great tool in a writers tool box.
Students who want to take the Advanced Technical Communication course so they can get right to creating portfolio pieces (before they take the Introduction course) are welcome to do that. The class is immersive. I teach the Advanced course and we focus on creating a portfolio of pieces (which is normally requested by potential clients and employers) and are a great way to learn how to write even if you want writing as your secret weapon in your job. We write a lot.
Some of the things I cover in the advanced class include presentations, reports, proposals, and step-by-step instructions. Check out my FAQ page for answers to the most asked questions I get in the course. The class is totally online and you will come away with several portfolio pieces. I’ve had students get jobs before they finish the program.
