A New Way to Take Classes With Me

Publish date:
Image placeholder title

Since 2009, I've taught dozens of online classes for Writer's Digest, and spoken at just as many live events.

But I know many of you haven't been able to work these classes into your schedule (since classes often run during the day), or you can't leave home to attend a conference.

So it's exciting to let you know about a new opportunity for you to learn from me, as well as other publishing professionals, on your own terms and on your own schedule.

Writer's Digest Tutorials just launched, and it's an on-demand education system, with pre-recorded classes. You can subscribe on a monthly or annual basis, or you can buy complete sessions outright.

Here are a few of the sessions available from me:

What's also nice about this system is that you can preview about the first 5 minutes of each session before deciding to commit.

Go check it out.

P.S. If you're interested in a cool LIVE class, one of the most popular contributors to Writer's Digest, Elizabeth Sims, is teaching a class on writing mystery/thriller, which includes a critique of your first page. It's happening on Thursday, Nov. 18, at 1 p.m.
