One of my all-time favorite authors, Nicola Griffith, is offering an online writing workshop. It looks like it's through the Romance Writer's Association (at least, RWA members get a discount), (though her writing is primarily speculative fiction, and, really, for me, all about the characters, who are fascinating), so I'm not sure what the other students might be like. I'm considering doing this, as I may actually have two minutes to rub together come February, but I know lots of y'all are also writers and might like to have the structure of a workshop.
Plus, hey, Nicola Griffith! If you haven't read Slow River or The Blue Place, do. Now.
