Jonathan Miller, Albuquer- que author and creator of the Dan Shepard Rattlesnake Lawyer novels which take place in New Mexico, nonfiction books and screenplays, will lead the work- shopr His focus will be on help- ing writers answer questions such as: Was that interesting happen- ing I was part of worthy of more than a "tweet" or a blog post? Maybe there's a short story in it or an article. Or, maybe it's the beginning of my novel. And be- yond that, how do I write myself into my story or should I even try? How do I decide to ,rite it as fic- tion or non-fiction? The workshop will consist of discussions and two writing ses- sions-one for approximately 20 minutes and the other, approxi- mately 50 minutes. The workshop cost is $85/ participant which includes One of Jan's novels or one of his non- fiction works, and refreshments. Space is limited. To register, please email your request to or call 575-313-3172. In addition to the puzzle- ments listed above, Jonathan will discuss editing issues and what to do after you've finished the work. He will personally critique your writing sample from the long writing session in the workshop and mail it back to you. Based on the result of his review of the long writing samples, he will select one to forward to his own agent for perusal. No guarantees what will transpire from that point on, but it's an opportunity that most writers would not want to miss. Miller's work is tight and intriguing. And it makes you smile, even as the mysteries pile up and the intricacies of rela- tionships get confusing. He writes with the authority that comes from actually practicing criminal law in New Mexico and his newest book, Laws & Loves chronicles his early years and how he learned to balance the, ]aw with literature, all the while looking for love in all tiie wrong courtrooms. (According to the back cover information, this book is a must for anyone thinking of practicing law or falling in love.) He currently practices law in Albuquerque where he writes and stays active in legal services that help the poor. Jan is a graduate of Albuquerque Academy, Cornell University, the University of Colorado School of Law, and the American Film Institute. He also wrote for the syndicated TV show Arrest and Trial and hopes to use his writing royalties to pay off his student loans before he dies.
