Kris Neri

Award-winning author and writing instructor, Kris Neri, is once again teaching her popular Novel Writing Course. Registration is now open for this six-week program for aspiring novelists, as well as those with works-in-progress and those who have a finished novel that needs polishing.

This novel writing course is a shortened version of her ongoing 10-week online course through the prestigious Writers Program on the UCLA Extension School.

The first weekly class will be on Wednesday, Sept. 4, at 6 p.m. All classes will be held at The Well Red Coyote bookstore in West Sedona, and will last approximately two hours (longer depending on the number and needs of the students). The fee for the course is $99.

The course will cover such topics as structure, setting, characterization, point-of-view, pacing, writing effective scenes, and many others, and will include Neri's proprietary hand-outs and special reading materials.

Kris Neri writes the Lefty Award-nominated Magical Mystery series, "High Crimes on the Magical Plane" and "Magical Alienation," as well as the Agatha, Anthony, Macavity, Lefty Award-nominated Tracy Eaton mystery series.

She has written two standalone thrillers and has published over sixty short stories, including two Derringer Award winners and two Pushcart Prize nominees. Magical Alienation recently won the New Mexico/Arizona Book Award for Best Fantasy Novel of 2012.

Neri teaches writing online for the Writers' Program of the UCLA Extension School, and is co-owner of The Well Red Coyote.

For a copy of the syllabus/schedule and/or to enroll, please contact Kris at, or call (928) 282-2284.
