Join Me for Business of Writing Workshops in New York, San Francisco, and Ohio

Speaking at Erma Bombeck Writers Workshop in 2018

Earlier this year, my new book, The Business of Being a Writer, released from University of Chicago Press. It received a starred review in Library Journal and has been featured on many podcasts and websites.

The Miami of Ohio workshop doesn’t provide a description of the workshop beyond “An Afternoon with Jane.” I’m interested in attending but would like to know the focus of the afternoon. Help?
