Keep your writer life fresh and dynamic with our monthly 1-hour Ripen Your Writing teleseminars. Learn all year long from seasoned writers and other creatives committed to serving the art & craft of your writing.
Part craft talk. Part writing workshop. All enrichment.
INsightful. INstructive. INteractive. Are you IN?
In 2015, we developed a different strategicado for our Ripen Your Writing series: Ripen Your Writing-meets-Avocado Book Clubwich—an educational discussion facilitated by me (or occasionally a guest writer), with advance reading of a text, either a writing manual applicable to all genres or a notable example of a hybrid genre.
cost per teleseminar:
Members…………………..FREE* (beginning January 2015; purchase 2013 & 2014 recordings below)
*Includes an MP3 recording of the teleseminar, emailed to ALL participants, to be listened to, on your computer, at your convenience, again and again.
Ripen Your Writing teleseminars will be conducted “live” from 8:00–9:00 PM (Eastern Time) / 5:00–6:00 PM (Pacific Time). To find your local time, use a time-zone converter (choose “U.S.A. – Colorado – Denver” as the originating time).
To attend the teleseminar “live”: Just before start time, you’ll simply enter on your telephone the dial-in # and, when prompted, the conference code, emailed in advance along with any advance-preparation requests by the presenter. Once everyone has entered the teleconference “room,” Marj Hahne, the host/moderator, will give instructions for how to participate virtually.
If you can’t attend the teleseminar “live”: You can still access the learning via the recording. (Sorry, no refund will be issued if you have to miss the “live” teleseminar due to a schedule conflict.)
