Not all online writing programs are equal. We’ve taken the in-person workshop experience and made it available to writers all over the world, on a platform custom-designed for writing workshops that’s easy and fun to use. And, unlike some online programs out there, we believe that keeping class sizes small means a better experience for everyone. You’ll get productive, motivating feedback from some of the top writers working today in a convenient format.
How it works. Classes meet in our ‘Salon’ online, where you get to chat with your classmates and instructor. Starting in 2019, most of our workshops are using in-system video chat. Check the course listing to see if a particular class will meet over video or text chat. Craft materials — from written and video lectures to reading assignments to writing prompts — are available online for you to complete throughout each week. Our online workshop allows students to post stories and provide in-line and longform feedback in one easily accessible place.

I felt like I came away from the course with new ways to approach my writing, and while I was originally hesitant about taking a course online, this workshop was a better experience than some in-person classes I've taken in the past!
