What to expect from classes that I personally host

Jane Friedman

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.

This is just a general THANK YOU. I’ve attended/listened to the recording of a number of your webinars and I always walk away feeling like I have several practical ideas that I can start using right away, and (and here’s the really important part for me) a sense of optimism, validation, and possibility. Lots of writer-related webinars cast a spell of “it’s all just too impossible, that’s cute you’re trying but nothing is really ever going to come of it.” Your webinars do the opposite. I don’t feel like you/your guest speakers are selling me positive thinking or anything like that, I just feel cared for as a writer. I feel respected. My time and the amount of money I spent on the webinar feels respected. And I leave wanting to keep going and trying, and also recommending your webinar to at least one friend afterward. Thank you for the time and care you put into each webinar.

I just want to thank you for always producing outstanding webinars—the quality is always way beyond all expectations. The fee is so small so I hope that you gets tons of people to make up for that. I have seen seminars of this nature go for 3 and 4 times what you charge. And I bet they aren’t nearly as good! In fact I’m sure of it!! So thank you very much—your knowledge, enthusiasm, and authenticity are unbeatable. Never change.

Just to let you know how much I am enjoying your online courses. I am learning so much. What I really mean is … I am learning SO much. Your course instructors are much more informed than the speakers I meet at writing conferences. I just finished watching Allison’s presentation about pitching and publishing. (In fact, this is the second time). It was just as great as Tiffany’s presentation regarding tension and suspense. These teachers are fantastic, and there is no time wasted. Thanks so much.

—Karen DePinto

I’ve registered for almost all of your classes, but I’m seldom able to watch in real time and so don’t have the opportunity to provide feedback. Just want to say I’m so impressed with the quality of the classes and the topics are always useful. I really appreciate what you do! Thank you!
