Free Online Writing Workshop

Welcome to our free online writing workshop. Beginning next week, we’ll be presenting one lesson here each Wednesday—a total of 10 lessons. Each lesson includes at least one exercise designed to reinforce the topic of that lesson and to help you build toward a completed short story (up to 5,000 words) by the end of the course.

If you have questions or wish to interact with other authors who may be working on the same lesson, please feel free to use the Comments area for that lesson. After each lesson is posted, we’ll add its direct link to this post, so you can bookmark this post for a reference to the full course.

If you wish to receive comprehensive direct feedback from me on each of your exercises, please contact me to arrange this. There is a $40 charge for full workshop participation, for which I will personally work with you through these exercises to help you build out your story idea and characters into a full manuscript. This course fee includes the following:

  • All 10 lessons and exercises
  • Comprehensive personal feedback for each exercise to help you build your characters and story idea into a finished manuscript
  • A full written critique of your final manuscript (a $70+ value)

We hope you enjoy the lessons, and we look forward to seeing your work.
