A Distant Bell
by Kate Saundby

The sequel to A Circle of Arcs, this fast-moving historical time travel has been likened to riding a kayak through the rapids. If you were blind and could only see in..

Have you thought about your local Junior College?
4/24/2008 7:21:50 AM
Did you know that many local junior colleges offer classes in things of interest for the community? They have Art, Knitting, Sign Language, and all kinds of subjects.

This could be a great opportunity for you as an author, illustrator, or both. Go by your local junior college and get a catalogue. Look in the back of that catalogue. It might have a  list of classes that people can sign up for that are taught by people, just like you.

Hey, you might have some other talent or background that your local college could use. Ask! You do not lose for asking. The worst thing they can say is, "Sorry, we do not have anything right now." If that happens, keep reminding them that you are interested.

Look under the "Continuing Education" department.

The Continuing Education Department is committed to linking College and community resources to provide quality enrichment programs to people of all ages.

Most colleges offer a variety of "fee-based" workshops, classes, community-service activities, and continuing education courses designed for those who want to keep learning but who are not necessarily interested in earning academic credit or pursuing a college degree.

Classes are designed for people in search of life enrichment and those striving for personal and professional growth.

Most programs consists of two major divisions of courses: professional development courses and personal development, interest, and leisure courses.

Programs are provided for youth, adults, and seniors in a variety of formats, such as seminars,workshops, and short courses.

For example, my local junior college wanted me to teach Watercolor Classes at night, but I already have a commitment. I could not do it right now.

Then, check out your local college's Kid's Programs during the Summer. Many colleges offer an education-based type of day care for children. I work two months in June at my local Junior College and teach Art to children. It provides vacation money for me and my family.

I just thought that all of you bloggers would appreciate a new idea to check out for a way to use your talent.

I would suggest that you write up a proposal of what you can offer and give it to the person that is in charge of the special programs. You never know what might happen. Give it a chance. Share your talent and knowledge. People will appreciate it.

Let me know if you find something.
