Online Classes

About

Online classes draw together writers from across the globe. Our Online classes offer the same quality of instruction as our NYC classes, and, as much as possible, our Online classes replicate the experience of being together in a classroom with a teacher and fellow students. (Skip to Tour)

The classes do not take place in "real time," (with the exception of an optional weekly one-hour chat session). You can participate in class any time, day or night, but the classes advance week-by-week, and certain things should be accomplished within that seven-day time period.

You can take an Online class from anywhere in the world, as long as you have an Internet connection. The majority of our Online students are located in the U.S. but we also draw students from practically every country in the world, which is part of what makes the Online classes so interesting.

Aside from the convenience of time and location, you have a written record of everything that transpires in class, which you can print out and keep for future reference. At the end of the class, you get a PDF packet of all your work and the corresponding comments.

Class size is limited, so that all students get personal attention:

  • Level I 10-week Workshops, 6-week Classes, Intensives – maximum 16 students
  • Level II 10-week Workshops (and Level III Fiction) – maximum 14 students
  • Selling Seminars – maximum 25 students
  • Level III 10-week Workshops (excepting Fiction) – 6 students
