If you happen to be in the Toronto area, check out this unique opportunity. I had the opportunity to learn from Eve this summer, and she really knows her stuff, including the publishing industry. This is an excellent opportunity, and the course is in danger of being cancelled because it’s one person short. Spread the word!
