Mentoring and critiques are up by authors, agents and editors. Writerly trips and lunches with bestselling authors at conferences. Baskets of books. Ebook readers. And much more. Quite frankly there's too much stuff up for me to list it all here. Go on over and check it out.

RWA Online Class - The Reading Brain: How Details (Show and Tell) Change How We Read

*****Permission to Forward****

RWA Online Class
Registration is Now Open!

The Reading Brain: How Details (Show and Tell) Change How We Read
Presented by Lisa Dale
Dates: April 11-22, 2011

About the Class: You’ve heard the “show don’t tell” rule a hundred times, and you know that you should do it. But “telling” is our fundamental way of communicating in our everyday lives, so as a writer, it’s extremely difficult to shake off our inherent, natural instincts to “tell” a story. By demonstrating how the human brain processes ideas through reading and other real life situations, Lisa shows how “show, don’t tell” works on an emotional and neurological level. When you learn what happens in the brain when a person is reading or speaking, the murky and difficult “show, don’t tell” rule becomes a bit clearer. You’ll also learn when to ignore the “show don’t tell” rule to great effect!
