There have been a lot of changes to our workshops in the next year. Rather than try to deal with all of them here, it’s easier for me if you go to my husband Dean’s website. All inquiries about the workshops should go to him. You can contact him through his website, deanwesleysmith.com.

Here’s the current workshop list:

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  We do one class (the Kris & Dean Show) for unpublished writers.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.
