writing courses and workshops and learn the techniques of the masters

Our writing classes are entirely online, featuring live instruction from masters of the craft.

Great writers aren’t born…
they’re made

Being a great writer isn’t a guessing game. But it does take passion, study, and practice.

You’ve got the passion. Our classes and workshops have the rest.

They’re led by award-winning authors and industry experts — and unlike other online writing classes where you just exchange emails with the teacher, our classes feature live online meetings so you can get insights from your teacher face-to-face.

How our writing classes work

Meet live via video and in a private discussion forum

Our teachers are hand-picked bestselling authors and industry experts. Chat with them in a private discussion forum before meeting them on live video for face-to-face instruction.

Get constructive feedback on your projects

Feedback is the best way to learn, and each class is designed to make sure you leave with detailed feedback on something you’ve written.

More than just a class… a lifelong community, too

You’ll join one of the largest writing communities online, where you can make friends, meet beta readers, and continue your writing journey.
