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, 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.
