So I’m teaching this course at LitReactor, which I’m excited about. I think it should be a healthy amount of fun. The course will focus on the first fifty pages of one’s novel manuscript, which we’ll critique and workshop until it’s polished.
It’s also been a blast to put together a reading list and discussion prompts for the weekly assignments. I’ve found it useful (and not just for the course, but as sort of an annual check-up) to revisit books I believe to be particularly effective, especially early on, such as The Drop Edge of Yonder, Warlock, Train Dreams, and The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle.
Anyways, if you’re at all interested, you should considering signing up so I’m not just left talking to myself.
"Two of the biggest contributing factors to [Two Dollar Radio’s] success are their adventurous choice of material and their enthusiasm for the written word… Two Dollar Radio and their fellow indies are proof positive that you can achieve […] success without pandering to trends. It may not always be a monetary success, but money’s obviously not the main motivation here. Eric and Eliza Obenauf publish books for love of the game. And as previously mentioned, their passion for what they do is infectious."
