What to expect from classes that I personally host

The classes that I offer are delivered via Zoom by experts in the writing and publishing community. They feature enlightening lessons, encouragement, and practical next steps for your project and career.

Most classes last 60-90 minutes and always include live Q&A. Any questions that we can’t get to live are answered in writing. Afterward, all registrants receive the recording, slides, transcript, Q&A, and other supporting materials that can be downloaded and kept for as long as you wish. Classes can also be an opportunity to meet and share with other writers grappling with the same questions as you.
