HEADS UP to NC WRITERS NETWORK MEMBERS and Western NC mountain writers.
A golden opportunity for short story (fiction ) writers.

John C Campbell Folk School is offering a free writing  WEEK END class with only a $25.00 registration fee.

Here's the class info:
Date: Friday, July 11 - Sunday, July 13, 2014
Subject: Writing 
Instructor: Valerie Nieman

Writers are challenged to create deep and complex characters. We'll discuss where our characters come from, and then work on techniques for “building” them through clustering, interpreting family structures, and placing them in moral dilemmas. Writing exercises will help you discover more about your characters and understand why they do what they do. Suitable for fiction and nonfiction writers at all levels.
