Choosing That Fatal Flaw

September 20, 2022 by in category Ages 2 Perfection Online Class, Apples & Oranges by Marianne H. Donley, Online Classes tagged as , , , ,

Presented by:  Laurie Schnebly Campbell

Date:  October 15, 2022 9AM PT

Pricing: A2P Member fee: FREE

Non-A2P Member fee: $10 

About the Workshop:

Writers who discover the versatility of enneagrams, the nine personality types and subtypes discovered by the Sufis and brought west a century ago, are fascinated by how easy it is to identify their existing characters as well as to create new ones. Each type and subtype has uniquely heroic and distinctive traits, as well as a fatal (or not so fatal) flaw that naturally brings them into conflict with other characters AND with themselves.

About the Presenter:

Laurie Schnebly Campbell loves giving workshops that draw on her background as an advertising copywriter, a counseling therapist, and a romance novelist who beat out Nora Roberts for “Best Special Edition of the Year.” Her favorite books are those created in the classes she teaches for WriterUniv.com, with 51 first sales so far.

Every Generation

September 19, 2022 by in category Ages 2 Perfection Online Class, Apples & Oranges by Marianne H. Donley, Online Classes tagged as , , ,

Presented by: Jenna Grinstead

Date: October 1, 2022 9AM

Pricing: A2P Member fee: FREE

Non-A2P Member fee: $10

About the Workshop:

As writer’s we know that every character has their own unique set of aspirations, goals and personality. But those exist within a larger context. Every generation has its own set of expectations, shaping experiences, relationship with technology and ways of interacting that are norms among that cohort. 

Marketers study these to hone messages to sell products and services. As authors we can use this information to shape realistic conflicts and build authentic multi-generational relationships among our characters. We’ll cover each of the generations living today—what experiences shaped them, what makes them unique, how their values conflict with other generations.

About the Presenter:

Jenna Grinstead is a whimsical Midwesterner with a penchant for magic and a deep desire for a world where the weird and different are embraced and celebrated. 

She is a graduate of The Ohio State University where she studied journalism. She found a way to turn her imagination and creativity into a career in marketing, while writing contemporary romance, young adult and middle grade fiction. She often conducts workshops and speaks on writing, world-building, social media and marketing.

Jenna is a member of The Society of Children’s Book Writers and IllustratorsCentral Ohio Fiction Writers, Romance Writer’s of America and Women’s Fiction Writers Association.

She is represented by Analieze Cervantes with The Harvey Klinger Literary Agency.

Preparing for NanoWrimo

September 18, 2022 by in category Ages 2 Perfection Online Class, Apples & Oranges by Marianne H. Donley, Online Classes tagged as , ,

Presented by: Terri Main

Date: October 18 -31, 2022 (two week) 

Pricing: A2P Member fee: $10

Non-A2P Member fee: $25 

About the Workshop:

They call it a month of literary abandon. It’s kind of like a marathon with words. I’ve done both kinds of marathons. This one is definitely less painful.  However, like the physical kind, the marathon called NaNoWriMo is a wonderful mix of professionals getting a head start on their next novel, new authors testing the waters of fiction, and some people just having fun. Everyone is a good reason to participate. But a bit of preparation makes participating easier. This course shows you how to prepare.

About the Presenter:

Terri Main sold her first piece of writing when she was just 18 years old. Since then, she has written hundreds of magazine and newspaper articles, thousands of pieces of marketing materials, more than sixty books, seven novels, video documentaries, and radio drama. 

 In addition to being an accomplished writer, she is also an experienced online educator. She helped pioneer online learning in the late 1990s and early 2000s. She has taught thousands of students both oral and written communication skills. Many of whom now have careers in the media and freelance writing. 

 As one student put it, “If you want to get published, you have to take a course from Terri Main.”
