On Sept. 7, Actor/author Lisa Peers will use theatre exercises to help improve your writing and self-presentation confidence.

On Oct. 5, La Ferle and writers Claire Charlton and Pam Houghton will offer a panel discussion "Publicity 101" to offer tips on how to write a press release and how to promote and publicize your business or event.
