Hey everyone,

Just wanted to drop a note and let you know that we're changing things up in how we staff our workshops. 

Bree Ogden, who's been serving as a facilitator for two years now, is being bumped up to assistant class director. She'll be doing a lot of what I do: Hunting down new instructors, convincing them how awesome LitReactor is, getting them to come here and teach you stuff. 

Meanwhile, we're bringing on Renee Pickup to serve as a facilitator. She'll join facilitator-extraordinaire Emma Clark, and the two of them will be on the ground, in the classrooms, ensuring that everything runs nice and smooth. 

LitReactor's online workshops have flourished in the last year—we got Chuck Palahniuk to teach for us. This has made us bold. Just wait until you see some of the people we're courting. My goal is to get us up to six classes a month (from our average of four), as well as attract bigger names and offer a more diverse slate of classes. 

So, raise a quick cheer for Renee and Bree. I'm very excited to see what these brilliant, badass ladies bring to the table.
