Pheobe Conn Workshop on Writing Sci-Fi Romance

I just discovered a posting at Savvy Authors about a workshop being offered in March 2012 by author Pheobe Conn (a.k.a. Cinnamon Burke): The Sky's the Limit: Writing the Futuristic Novel.

Here's an excerpt:

Instructor: Phoebe Conn. PHOEBE CONN is the author of five Futuristic romances, written under her own name and also as Cinnamon Burke. A fan favorite, she’ll share her secrets for writing an unforgettable Futuristic romance.
 Learn how to analyze your ideas to select the best and turn your first book into a series. When THE SKY’S THE LIMIT, set your imagination free to create larger-than-life characters with wrenching conflicts to overcome. We’ll compare our impressions of popular films with Futuristic elements, THE TERMINATOR and AVATAR as well as other favorites. Those who wish to share their work for comments may do so, but there are no specific writing assignments required for the class. This is a four week course. Lessons will be posted on Monday and Wednesday. Friday will be reserved for questions and the sharing of students’ work.

The workshop runs Feb 20, 2012 - March 18, 2012. There's a fee: $20 for Premium Members and $30 for Basic Members. Click here for complete details.

And if you take the course, please tell Ms. Conn how much I enjoyed her space pirate heroine in LADY ROGUE! Come to think of it, I haven't blogged about that heroine yet. There were some interesting dynamics between her and the hero. Would y'all be interested in hearing about it?

Joyfully yours,
