Opportunity: Intensive Workshop with Author/Agent

My longtime writing pal (since high school) Jim Ure shares this with my readers. He says:
Sherree Bykofsky, my agent, is conducting a one-day intensive workshop  in Reno on Saturday, Nov. 2.  She owns her own literary agency and is the author of 25 books (she’s agented and placed more than 1,000 books) will do the one day workshop at Truckee Meadows Community College.  If you have anyone interested, have them my name (Jim Ure)  and they’ll get a $100 discount on the full day’s workshop/seminar (the price will then be $249).  BTW:  She’s the author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Getting Published.

 Truckee Meadows wants to close enrollment on this on the 13th of October but they have a few openings left.  The website indicates it’s pointed at the medical and legal professions but they have opened it for any writers.  I have attended Sheree’s workshops and they are terrific.
