Five Reasons Why You Should or Should NOT Take a Writing Class

I would like to say thank you for offering such a wonderful online writing classes. My son, Keith, just finished his first course, SPARK YOUR IMAGINATION – STORY IDEAS. I could say that all the weekly notes and writing activities gave him a big help. He enjoyed doing the writing activities and reading your personal comments in the past 6 weeks. We will come back for another writing class soon!

WRITING CLASSES FOR KIDS AND ADULTS

Hello Dee. I just signed up and paid for your adult writing class ‘What Happens Next?’ I paid with Paypal but I failed to find a place for me to register. Please help me get started. Thank you.

Those of us who matriculate through MA, MFA, and PhD programs join a select club relative to the general population: writers who can make some kind of living, no matter how meager, from work related to their art. Access to that club is so limited and our numbers so few that we become a class unto ourselves, a writing class serving as poetry’s own version of a 1 percent. It’s true that club isn’t so decadent as the analogy implies. I put in time after my MFA and again after my PhD earning lousy incomes as an adjunct lecturer, postdoctoral fellow, and visiting writer. I taught my share of overwhelming course loads for underwhelming pay without health insurance or job security. Still, I remained a poet in the academy and party to its culture even as it exploited me as a low-cost laborer.

As helpful as they can be, writing classes aren’t for everyone. Here are two reasons to avoid them:
“I’ve taken other writing classes and this one was by far the most helpful and most practical. My writing improved dramatically over the last month.” "It was a nice journey for me to be able to write in answer to your e-mail lessons. Being able to post the answers on WordPress is exciting. I had not done that before taking your writing class. I plan to take another of your e-mail class, either the 8-week descriptive or the new poetry class."
- James Sciullo
Thus, I teach a four-week online writing class designed to improve the writing of people at any skill level—beginner, intermediate, or professional. Regardless of your current ability, I won’t judge you. Rather, I want to show you how to write clearly, concisely, and beautifully. I want to help you create powerful writing that grabs people’s attention and keeps them turning (or scrolling) the page., conventionally similar to the one-minute paper, have, in practice, taken the form of one-page papers written outside class. Informal and exploratory, these assignments should, again, present students with low-risk situations where they can feel free to speculate and work through their thoughts, paving the way for more sophisticated analysis and evaluation. Examples include the following:
I am a working adult, I would like to enrol the writing class for adult.

We offer novel writing and general fiction writing classes

I have taken two in-person writing classes, Story Cartel online, free online classes, plus several workshops at two different conferences. One of my local writing classes turned into a writing group which has met monthly for probably five years now, and Story Cartel turned into two online groups (or more, I lose count), one of which is a fabulous critique group. So in terms of connecting with other writers, course have been great.
I agree that it’s important to have a chance to workshop your material. It’s the best way to learn, even though it can be frightening to read out loud and be critiqued in front of other writers. Writing is an activity which can only be learned by doing and getting feedback, then doing it some more.

Writing Classes - Central Oregon Community College

I’m actually in Australia so I’m afraid I can’t recommend any writing classes in your area. The classes I offer are online. Maybe you could look up and see if there is a Society of Childrens Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) group in your area. They might be able to advise you of an author who takes writing classes in your area.
