    Announcing New York and Boston Language Workshops!

    facebookadThe Los Angeles workshops are starting to fill up, and I’ve gotten enough requests for East Coast workshops that I’ve set two dates: August 10-11 (New York) and August 17-18 (Boston). I’ll have venue information relatively soon.

    Workshop 3: New York (Precise location TBA)

    Saturday, August 10th, 2013; 10am-6pm
    Sunday, August 11th, 2013; 1:45pm-5:15pm

    Workshop 4: Boston (Precise location TBA)

    Saturday, August 17th, 2013; 10am-6pm
    Sunday, August 18th, 2013; 1:45pm-5:15pm

    Prices are the same as the LA workshops: $195 per person, and $175 if you register by July 25th. Also, if you’re attending a workshop and refer someone, you both get $10 back.

    Details here!

    Also, I’ll be extending the early registration discount for the LA workshops for another few days, until July 4th, 10pm. Information about the workshops is going out on a few mailing lists today, and I want to make sure people on those lists have an opportunity to take advantage of the discount before it expires. That’s it!
