Veteran author Bob Hostetler showed no surprise during the writers conference when I attended his class on nonfiction one-sheets.

Nor did Jerry Jenkins raise an eyebrow when several faculty members — themselves professional editors — attended our Thick-Skinned Manuscript Clinics.

One faculty member did say she was startled when another staffer — who’d headed a publishing house and taught college-level journalism — came to hear her teach. But what surprised her was that he sat in the middle of the front row.

“If you want to grow in your craft,” Jerry Jenkins told the conferees, “never stop learning.” He’s planning to listen to the recording of a session he missed on using Scrivener software.

In Bob Hostetler’s class, I picked up some tips on writing one-sheets. What have you learned lately?
