Instructor Burkhart ;)

Okay, so I talked last week about an announcement regarding writing (sort of) and now I can finally share the details. For six weeks during the fall, yours truly will be teaching an online writing class for Lamar University in Texas. I'm teaching "Writing for Teen Magazines" for the adult and distance learning department of the university. I wrote and submitted a syllabus and blurb for the course. The info will pop up on Lamar's Website over the next couple of weeks and when it does, I'll post the link here. The university's Professional Writing Center boasts great classes and I'm thrilled to be involved. I'm capping enrollment at 20 students because I'll be writing and editing during that time, but I welcome the chance to try something new and any way to connect with aspiring and professional writers sounds good to me.

So, that's the news for today. :) A big thanks to Jessy for orchestrating everything!
