Weekend Update: January 22-23, 2022

Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Sandra Neily (Monday), Maureen Milliken (Tuesday), Kate Flora (Thursday) and Dick Cass (Friday).

In the news department, here’s what’s happening with some of us who blog regularly at Maine Crime Writers:

Kate Flora: In case anyone is looking for a basic writing crime fiction class, I’ll be teaching one in April for Maine Media Workshops. More information here: https://www.mainemedia.edu/workshops/item/crime-fiction-101/

Looking for something sooner and shorter:

Writing with a Sense of Place workshop with Kate Flora
Explore the techniques writers use to create a powerful sense of place through exercises and discussion. Spend two sessions learning about craft and observational strategies, along with a reading list of writers whose work might be inspiring. Some assignments in advance.
