GCLS Presents... Webinars for 2012/2013
Welcome to the GCLS Webinars homepage. Our Webinars are open to the public as well as members. The fee for attending a webinar is $25 for members, $30 for non-members.
This educational year, our webinars will be offered on the 3rd Saturday of each month, at 9am (Pacific) or Noon (Eastern), from August, 2013 through to June, 2014.
In 2013/14 we will be offering webinars in three distinct categories:
1) “Experts In The Craft of Writing” – these are authors (and could be editors) with a significant body of publications behind them, who also have experience in teaching the craft of writing – whether in a classroom, in workshops, online or at conferences. 2) “Experts in the General Field of Writing” – these are authors or editors who have significant experience in many aspects of the profession of writing. These topics would relate more to information about issues or processes or aspects about the profession of writing that are not associated with the “how-to-write” aspects, but rather the “how-to-succeed” or “how-to-proceed” aspects that fall outside the realm of the craft of writing.
3) “Content Experts” – these are people who may or may not be writers, but who have worked, trained and have a significant body of experience and expertise in a given area, so as to be an expert resource to our writers. Presentations will start at 30 minutes followed by 30 minutes or more of questions and answers – providing attendees the opportunity to “grill” the presenters for details pertaining to something they are working on with their writing. Additionally, presenters will provide a handout summarizing the presentation plus information on how to contact them for more details/questions.
Examples of this type of expertise could be: police, crime or forensics experts, Emergency Room Doctor, a Government Official from DC, an engineer, a researcher, or scientist, an olympic athlete, an astronaut or member of the space program... you name it, we will try to find it for you.
