Hyperbole is the best thing ever!

I will be teaching two writing courses through Chinook Learning Services Continuing Education. You can register for the classes here.
The first one is Writing with Humour

Humour is a way to engage your readers while getting your point across. Explore when to use humour, different types of humour, and the styles and techniques of humour writing. Humour is a powerful device when coupled with strong writing skills.

The course will be offered three times, one each in February, March and May.

Writing Queries that Pop (I wanted to call it writing kick butt queries, butt they wouldn't let me)

This course is designed for writers who are querying or have a manuscript they are about to submit. You will submit your query letter in advance and be prepared to have it discussed in class for the purposes of making it stronger. The bulk of the class will be used to critique the participants' query letters. This is a hands on, spill some ink, break a few pencils kinda course. You've written your fiction manuscript. It's been through your writers' group and has undergone numerous rewrites. You think it's ready to send to publishers. You've done your research about which publishers would be appropriate and you've read their submission guidelines. Now you need to write a query letter that will get your submission pulled out of the slush pile.

This is query letter writing hell - you don't want to go there!
