NOTE: Homework (generally 2-4 hours per week depending on your speed/skillset) and class participation is required. **If you missed the F&G 101 classes but feel you're qualified to enroll in the 102 because you're a working editor, or you have a special situation (relatives of Shelly Bond are not eligible, sorry, Dad.) please email Shelly directly at
