    Hi all,

    I'm pleased to announce that I'll be teaching a fully-online Creative Writing Workshop for Crime and Mystery Fiction through Stanford University this winter quarter (January 12 through March 22). The class is limited to 17 students and will definitely fill fast. For more information and to sign up, visit the course page http://continuingstudies.stanford.edu/courses/course.php?cid=20082_EGL%20298%20W

    This is a great opportunity for budding/aspiring crime authors to hone their skills in writing action, dialogue, visual scenes, voice and point of view. Have the chance to get valuable feedback on your writing (stories or a novel), and to produce your own podcast and get your work out to over one thousand listeners at CrimeWAV.com.

    We'll be discussing online promotion for writers, techniques of crafting fiction, and reading a great list of crime short stories to feed our analysis!

    You can take this class no matter where you live or what your schedule is. The beauty of the online class is that you can do the work and post it, even participate in the class discussions at YOUR own pace and schedule.

    This class is open to any adult (over 18) interested in Crime and Mystery writing. There are no prerequisites, and a range of abilities is expected, even beneficial. The main qualification the students need is interest.

    This course can be taken graded, for credit, or ungraded.

    Seth Harwood received an MFA in fiction from the Iowa Writers' Workshop. He has taught creative writing at the University of Iowa, the University of Massachusetts, and at the City College of San Francisco, and his fiction has appeared in more than a dozen literary and crime/noir journals. His first novel, Jack Wakes Up, reached #1 in Crime/Mystery on Amazon.com and #45 overall in books on the first day of its release. Three Rivers Press has since bought the rights to the novel for a May 2009 nationwide release. He also hosts the online series of crime story podcasts on CrimeWAV.com.
