New Query & Synopsis Workshops Offered!

It's been almost two years since I offered any online workshops. I've continued to offer both the query and the synopsis workshop at writer's conferences, but I realize that for many writers, the cost of conferences is prohibitive. With that in mind, I've decided to offer both my How To Write A Killer Synopsis workshop and my Query Writing 101 workshop online during the month of March. I've done my best to keep the cost as affordable as possible, including offering a discount if you purchase both workshops at the same time.

Purchasing the workshops separately would be $125, but if you register for both at the same time, you save $25! See the "Workshop Package" Paypal button on the sidebar.)

Please note that in order to manage the volume of query critiques, registration for the query workshop is limited.

Here are the details:
