This time of year, we all analyze our lives and our careers – looking to the past and planning the future. As writers, we seek to improve our craft through a variety of ways. Online writing courses are an inexpensive option to consider, and provide more benefits than you might imagine.
I coordinate WIES Workshops. Each month, we offer one to three writing courses geared toward writers of various skill levels. The classes are usually small – five to ten students each – so students gets plenty of one-on-one instruction and detailed feedback specific for them. The format is easy – all lessons and coursework completed by e-mail on your own schedule. The instructor grades or critiques homework assignments, answers any questions you may have, and provides feedback as needed.
Students of our previous courses are raving. They’ve let us know that the feedback and encouragement from instructors has allowed them to take their writing to the next level, and some of the students take several courses as they grow in confidence and ability.
We’re excited about the lineup for the new year. The schedule changes regularly, so check back often to view updates. You can also sign up for our quarterly newsletter to receive updates and savings.
