WHAT GOES ON IN THE NC MEDICAL EXAMINER’S OFFICE?

Jacque Perkins, a forensic nurse working in the NC ME’s office, will focus on one or more of these topics: human trafficking, domestic violence, sexual assault exams, forensic nursing, or the state’s Medical Examiner. Let us know well in advance your preference for which of these 5 areas Jacque could focus on that would help you in your own writing — which is the reason these programs are offered.

PSYCHOPATHIC, PSYCHOTIC & SOCIOPATHIC BEHAVIORS, OH MY!

With 20+ years' experience in mental health, Dr. Melissa Floyd-Picard, Professor & Chair of UNCG Department of Social Work, helps writers of all genres develop believable characters and plausible actions/reactions by distinguishing these behaviors from each other (which writers often get wrong). Her fascinating case examples will give you much to think about! She's also writing her own first work of fiction, a Southern slice-of-life gothic.
