Workshop Wednesday: Bringing Pirates to Life

I enjoy taking online writing workshops.  They're a great way to learn something new, hone your craft, and connect with fellow romance writers.  So I've decided to do a new blog post on Wednesdays to spotlight some of the upcoming workshops offered through my RWA Chapters, Hearts Through History and the Celtic Hearts Romance Writers.

First up is Bringing Pirates to Life, a class sponsored by Hearts Through History.  This workshop explores the difference between the reality and mythology of Caribbean piracy during the mid-seventeenth through the early eighteenth centuries, and how writers can create believable characters that fit within historical parameters.

March 26, 2012 - April 20, 2012
Registration Deadline: March 25, 2012
Instructor: Cindy Vallar
