Sisters in Crime subsidizing Gotham class

Discussion started on

If you're a member of Sisters in Crime, SinC will subsidize the cost of a Gotham beginners mystery writing class. (Joining SinC only costs $40.) Making the final cost of the class $109. All you have to do is write a blog post at the end of the class to be reimbursed.

Info is here: http://sistersincrime.org/displaycommon.cfm?an=1&subarticlenbr=112

I'm doing this now. I wish they would subsidize the more advanced class, but I am content. I love the interaction with the professor and her feedback on homework and Booth submissions. I really enjoy learning more about the mystery genre and seeing how I can use a traditional mystery framework for a YA audience.

The class is entirely online and it's 10 weeks.

Cool.  I've been in SinCrime for many years. Since I love mysteries and writing for kids this is a great group for me (after SCBWI). Our next meeting in Sacramento will have a Sheriff and CSI professional speak--and that should be really cool.
