Workshop title: Writing the Authentic Western
Date: 1/5 - 1/30/09
A fascinating look at how physical, chronological and social histories
of the American West apply to westerns. Whether we are writing
paranormal, romantic, historical or YA genre, this class will lend
authenticity to our writing. (Course taught at the Women Writing the
West conference in Colorado Springs.) This is not a stuffy social
studies class; it's a must for authentic paranormal, romance,
historical and YA western writing.
