Instructor: Lynn Price

Dates: June 13 – June 25, 2011 This is a two week class.
Cost: Member Fees are $10.00 and Non-Member Fees are $15.00.

 

About the Class:
Filling a gap that exists in today’s writing reference manuals and writer’s conferences, this two-week online course offers a unique look at the publishing business and the submission process from the agent’s/editor’s viewpoint.
This one-stop-shopping class also will provide a thorough breakdown of the elements that go into a cover letter, synopsis, biography, and promotion plan.  Learn, too, about
·         Differences in publishers and what is a Print On Demand publisher versus print on demand printing technology?
·         What is a vanity press, and can they get my books on store shelves?
·         What’s the advantage to going e-book?
·         Should I care about distribution?
Added to the mix will be Lynn Price’s own special collection of common writing mistakes that often result in a rejection letter – point of view switches, comma misplacement, bad transitions between new paragraphs.
This fast-paced, two-week look at the publishing world will cover the whole enchilada so writers can become better at their craft and understand how the industry works.
About the Instructor:
Along with being the editorial director for Behler Publications, Lynn Price is the award-winning author of the novel, Donovan’s Paradigm, and of the writing reference book, The Writer’s Essential Tackle Box: Getting a Hook on the Publishing Industry.  Debuting last year as part of the Get It Write series, this second work provides “an insider’s view geared to inform and educate writers as to how we work, why we work, and the pitfalls to avoid.”
Since 2003, Behler Publications has been publishing best selling and critically acclaimed works chronicling personal journeys with socially relevant themes: stories that deal with how people are influenced and changed by their experiences and how they deal with those repercussions.  The books invite introspection: “I’m a better/more thoughtful/ smarter person for having read this book.”
In addition to extensive speaking engagements at writer’s conferences all over the country, Lynn also assumes a lighthearted and somewhat irreverent tone in addressing the many issues facing today’s writers on the Behler Publications blog: http://behlerblog.com/
This is a 2 week class. 
Member Fees are $10.00 and Non-Member Fees are $15.00.

Coming In July

“Breaking Things Down Into Threes”with Beth Daniels  

 

Plotting and more for plotters and pantsers: Plots require organization – even those written by pantsers. Why? Because all storytelling requires a flow, a smooth transition from one scene to the next. Getting it doesn’t require an outline though. All it requires is a system . . . a system of thirds.
This class is for writers at any point in their writing career from unpublished to midlist.

 

Date: July 11 – August 6, 2011 this is a four week class
Cost: $20 for OCC members, $30 for non-members

  • I Have Become a Tale Faery by Ransom Stephens

    That’s right, not a fairy tale, a Tale Faery. A genuine hetero, cis Tale Faery. We’re rare.

    It started with dragonflies on a magic summer day in Gainesville Florida. One of those 100+ degree, 100+% humidity (seriously, a clear blue sky supersaturated with humidity, a state of dew), my five-year-old daughter and I rode our bikes around a swamp, and I discovered what faeries are.
