In a busy world, I have grown to love online classes–taking them and teaching them. There’s a camaraderie that develops in spending time together each week, sharing stories, discussing the work. And there’s inspiration in numbers to tackle that difficult subject or press on with revisions on that stubborn essay. All of this at arms length when life keeps us too busy to steal away for a morning conference, a weekend retreat, or a semester-long course.
With that in mind, I’ve got a new online opportunity on the horizon for you! Details are below, but suffice it to say this one promises incentive for new work, space for critique, and a possibility for community. It begins May 1st; registration is now open. Sign up, sharpen your pencil (or dust off your keyboard), and get ready to write!
Write, Critique. Rinse, Repeat
a writing-intensive and critique-focused course
May 1-May 28, 2016
$90 for new students

In this four-week online course, you will generate several new pieces of work and receive feedback from your peers in quick turnaround. Weekly lessons will touch briefly on certain aspects of story (such as beginnings, characters, theme) and include tips for critique on these specifics. By the end of the course, you will have grown your portfolio and your community of writers, as well as have a list of resources for further study.
Registration is now open via PayPal below.
Deadline to sign up is April 23rd and seats are limited!
