Don't be late for class.

So, I'm looking to attend more workshops or classes over the summer. The problem is I don't know where to start. I saw one locally, but I know I can only attend 1/2 of the classes due to vacations and kids' obligations. I did take a class online over the winter. It was good, but didn't quite live up to what I was expecting.
So, I'm searching again--for something to make me stronger.

I know WriteOn Con is coming. I will be checking that out.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I know many of you are not local, but maybe something online that you may have taken or heard of.

Thanks and have a great day!

  1. Well you now who I WON'T be recommending, especially since she's getting worse as an instructor. Sorry, I don't have any suggestions. I'm going to Anaheim for the RWA nationals in July and I can't wait.

    The RWA offers a lot of online workshops through the various chapters, and you don't need to be a member. I can forward the next list to you when it comes out.

  2. I would love to go to a workshop but I just don't have the time. Truly, I would love to HAVE a workshop. I used to coordinate those when I worked at the inn. Unfortunately, that costs a lot of money too. Someday.

  3. Shameless plug for my Writing For Children class at Arcadia University in the fall--but....it's not online.

  4. Check in with Philadelphia Stories magazine. They usually offer a few inexpensive classes during the Chestnut Hill Book Festival in July. I took a great class that only cost $10 on marketing your writing.

    Is there an adult education wing of your local public schools? Most have them. I have also seen some inexpensive writing workshops offered through Mount Airy Learning Tree. The quality varies, but some are quite good. And not too long a drive from West Chester.

  5. I haven't done any workshops or anything like that in awhile. I did writeoncon last year and attempted the Nanowrimo in November but failed miserably. Hope you find something soon!

  6. I don't know of any workshops. I know there's some kind of online thing going on with panel discussions in August. Contact @affablebulldog to find out more. He's on twitter.

  8. I haven't taken any online courses, but if you find a good one, let us know! That would be so helpful. :)

  9. Maybe not the online workshops, but I really liked Margie Lawson's packets you could purchase and go through on your own. Incredible! Start with Empowering Character's Emotions.

  10. I don't really know any, but is there a university anywhere near you that might offer classes or workshops you can take? I know awhile back Nova Ren Suma was offering an online course too. I bet there might be others. Good luck!
