Writing About the Natural World …

by Darlyn Finch Kuhn on January 4, 2018


… Without Boring the Heck out of Your Readers. That’s the name of a great new online class being taught by Sandra Gail Lambert in March 2018.

Lambert will “use a variety of techniques and readings that will help revise our descriptions of the natural world (in any genre of nonfiction or fiction) in ways that develop our characters and plots rather than obscure them. The fourth week will be reserved for individual conferences (Skype or phone calls), where I’ll give feedback on your individual pieces (up to 5000 words) and help develop a submission plan if that is requested.”

Here’s a link to a description of the ourse and more info about Lambert.

Pat Stanford


Pat is an author at Southern Yellow Pine Publishing and President-Elect of the Tallahassee Writers Association. Here is her bio from

Pat Stanford was born in Philadelphia. Her farming family moved to Florida, looking for year-round growing seasons when she was one. She lived there until a brief stint in the Air Force took her to California.

Fixing Boo Boo‘ is a gold medal winner in the 2017 F.A.P.A. President’s Awards. It is about what happens when a brain-injured sibling comes to live with a sister who doesn’t know what that means. She also has poetry published in several anthologies, and won second place in the 2004 Seven Hills Contest with her short story, ‘Divorce Sale’.

She served as President of the local rose society and is a bronze medal recipient with the American Rose Society.

Pat lives in Tallahassee, Florida with her husband and kitty “Sammie” and is currently working on a work of fiction, as well as a ghostwriting project.”
