Skype Class to Begin with the New York Writer's Workshop... and moi!

Hi folks,

This is to announce that I will be co-teaching a live Skype class for the New York Writer’s Workshop with author Jenny Milchman, beginning on Thursday, February 23. The class is called: Beginnings: The Start of Your Novel, Your Career, and Your Writing Life. The class size will be limited, so if you’re interested please apply as soon as you can.


Please go to for complete details and how to apply.


Here are the basics:

Craft a solid beginning and you just may have a novel that sells.

In this class, you will learn what constitutes a great opening, techniques that will apply to the rest of a successful novel as well. You will also learn the three main ways to get published and how to determine which one is best for you. Finally, you will explore ways to jump-start your creativity and enter the state of flow that is so essential, not only to getting started but to getting all the way to the finish line.

Taught by acclaimed writing instructor Les Edgerton (author of HOOKED) and Jenny Milchman, an author who recently sold her debut novel to a major house after eleven years of trying, this class will bring you that much closer to your own successful writing career.

Class will be taught online via Skype in a round table format
on seven (7) Thursdays, 2/23, 3/2, 3/9, 3/16, 3/23, 4/5, 4/12
from 7-8:30 pm EST.
There will also be a version offering pre-recorded lectures with email access to instructors.
An optional session of writer’s coaching will be offered on
Thursday, April 19
to be scheduled with either instructor.

Pricing is as follows:
Live Skype Class: $535
Pre-recorded Sessions with Email Access to Instructors: $335
One-on-one Coaching: $100/hour
Information on how to apply for a seat in class is on the website. Hope to see some of you in class!

Blue skies,
