Writing/Business Workshops

Every year, Dean and I do some classes for professional writers, mostly to help them with the business.  We do one class (the Kris & Dean Show) for unpublished writers.  We have the list of workshops that will take us into mid-2011.  I’m not sure what we’ll teach after that.  2011 is shaping up to be a busy travel year, and 2012 might be as well. So there’s no guarantee that we will teach these again any time soon.

Here’s the upcoming list, with information on how to contact us at the bottom.  If you’re interested, let Dean know at the e-mail address below.
