Bud Gardner, co-author of Chicken Soup for the Writers Soul, part of the New York Times best-selling series, is offering a workshop, Writing for Fun and Profit, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Saturday, March 9 at Sierra College, in Rocklin.

A successful writing coach who has inspired his students to earn more than $10 million by selling their writing, Gardner said, “Have you always wanted to get into print, but you didn’t know just how to do that? If so, this seminar is for you.”

Students will learn to see writing as a process, make money writing short articles, send poetry to greeting card companies, create humorous fillers that sell, write and sell the Chicken Soup for the Soul story, write an effective query letter, make multiple sales from one idea, self-publish books and use the ten clear writing tips.
