I’m working on a couple of projects right now, and wanted to give you a heads up (especially as both involve some freebies…!)
Big Course: World Changing Writing Workshop
The fantastic Pace and Kyeli Smith run an annual online writing workshop, focusing on helping students produce writing which matters. How you define “world changing” is up to you!
Last year, I contributed an ebook for the (fantastic) pack of bonus material. This year, I’ve contributed an ebook again – but more importantly, I’m one of the six workshop speakers.
The main sessions run in June and July. In mine, I’m going to be talking about making a living from writing – and touching on fiction-writing too. The five other fantastic speakers have an incredible amount of experience between them, and they’ll be talking about how to be inspiring, how to teach, and how to get the words out of your head and onto the page.
The workshop consists of eight hour-long sessions (which are recorded and transcribed – you don’t have to call in live), a workbook with exercises from each speaker, an awesome pack of bonuses, and an exclusive forum where you can chat with other writers.
Early-bird (ie. cheap!) registration runs from today until May 17th, so if you might be interested, check it out this week. You can get the whole course for $297, or the course plus last year’s recorded sessions for just $396. The prices will be going up to $445 and $544 after May 17th, so I highly recommend getting in now. 🙂
You can get the first session of the workshop – which runs this Thursday, 12th May – completely free, plus the final session from last year, from this page.
Small Course: Blog On (and Free Blogging Ebook)
Maybe the World Changing Writing Workshop is a bit big for you, or it doesn’t quite suit the sort of writing that you’re doing.
I’m busy working on a new ecourse, Blog On, that I’ll be opening up for registration in early June (hint, if you get the ebook, you’ll also get a discount on the course).
Blog On is an extremely hands-on eight week course where I’ll take you through four major types of blog post, giving you step-by-step guidance so that by the end of the eight weeks, you’ll have four really strong, valuable posts on your blog.
All the lessons will be delivered as text, and you’ll get templates to help you write each type of post.
I’ll also be doing a Q&A, group critiques, and running a prize draw at the end of the course. If that sounds like fun, watch out for more details.
It’s likely to be around $40-$50 for the eight weeks, with some premium options if you want them.
Last week, I published Ten Powerful Ways to Make Your Blog Posts Stronger – a short, action-packed ebook to help you make the most of your blog posts. You can get your copy here.
