Anne loves teaching teen writers groups and adult writers groups on beginning craft; panels on indie publishing from marketing to 'how to' and what roads/pitfalls to watch out for--what to do yourself (it's not that hard) and what is a reasonable charge in today's industry (because there are people making too much money and offering questionable work off of a writer's dreams--what to sign, what not sign, and how to protect your rights). Craft on hero's journey, beginnings, how to pitch and land an agent or editor the traditional way, character arcs, anything can be tailored to what the group needs. School groups, visits/Library visits--all fees are donated back to the library or schools and/or will come speak for free.
