[Sincere apologies to Lois for not posting this sooner! And I'm the very introvert you're trying to help! Doh!]
Does the thought of sending out your manuscript give you sweaty palms? Lois Brandt has a class for you:
Marketing for Introverts: Short Stories and Novels
If you’ve written a great story but are uncomfortable putting on a salesman’s hat, this class is for you. During this three hour session we will develop a plan to sell your novel or short story to an agent, publishing house, or magazine. Although we will touch on researching markets and packaging the product (yes, your novel or short story is a product), the focus of this class is to develop a sales strategy to get your writing into the hands of consumers. We will learn to use writing conferences and social media in ways that are comfortable for the writer and build a platform for his or her works. Fee: $59.00

Maddi's Refrigerator, my story about childhood hunger in the United States, won second place for picture books at the 2012 Pacific Northwest Writers Association literary contest.
