Announcing A Writer's Workshop by Brown Girls Publishing Manager, Rhonda McKnight.

I have had the pleasure of working with Rhonda McKnight on four of my novels: Walk A Straight Line, My Steps Are Ordered, The Fall Of The Prodigal and Color Blind. I highly recommend this workshop for serious wanna-be writers and published authors. If you want to learn the craft, Rhonda is one of the best. 
I pulled this information directly from her website:
