Novel Writing Course for Lawyers

I've had enough lawyer wannabe novelists write to me about writing, reading their work and giving feedback, and publishing and marketing, that I thought maybe I should ask: would you, an attorney, be interested in enrolling in such a legal thriller course if I developed it? There would be a certain price threshold because the preparation of such a course would take me away from my writing bread and butter, but it would be a reasonable value, of course.

The course could cover the generalities of the legal thriller novel, such as they are, choice of story, expansion of choice into a novel-length treatment, and all the rest of the craft considerations the noobie novelist will need to review. We could maybe even do some hands-on feedback reading and writing where I would take a look at your chapter and publish it online, along with my comments. This might help us all learn.

Comments please. Is this something you might like to do?

I wouldn't be interested personally, but I can definitely see the value in it. I hope to see it come to fruition!
