Booting Up My New Material

Registration for my all-new Writing Boot Camp in suburban Los Angeles opens today (register here). The 10-week course covers all general writing formats, from business writing and blogging, social media and e-mail to fiction or non-fiction in script, manuscript or memoir.

I plan to explain essential principles and furnish a checklist for perfect writing. Particular emphasis on proper pre-conditions and writing guidelines includes:

  • Selecting format, topic and theme
  • Motivational and relaxation techniques
  • Writing, editing and clarifying
  • Best practices
  • Good resources

Writing Boot Camp will be fun, lively and streamlined for beginning, intermediate and advanced adults. Each student will have an opportunity to have his writing evaluated. Space is limited, so register soon if you want to attend (click/touch here to register today). Registration is also open for All About Social Media, which offers an essential guide to creating, using and maximizing Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn (register for the social media course here).

Private instruction is also available. Contact me for details if you’re interested.

The evening class examines storytelling and how to make yourself the hero of any new writing project. Speaking of heroes, my op-ed defending the legendary Bob Hope and Burbank’s Bob Hope Airport appears in the Los Angeles Times-owned Burbank Leader (read the article here). In case you missed it, I argue that Bob Hope’s self-made status suits both the city’s and airport’s history.
The self-made man and the history of a place also inform my summer series for Chicagoland newspapers. Towns north of Chicago are the scene for the world’s first Girl Scout cookie, Frank Lloyd Wright’s only bridge ever built, invention of Christmas lights, visits from Teddy Roosevelt, even America’s first recorded serial killer. The articles are part of a new collection of North Shore stories. Sort and read by article index here. Keep checking the link because there are more to come.
