This week brings the fourth installment of places through which you can take creative writing workshops and classes online! If you have a recommendation of an organization, group, or individual offering online creative writing classes, don't forget to share it with me! Next week's post will be the final post in this series this month, but I plan to add to it throughout the year, so don't be shy and send forth your recommendations when you have them.
Keep reading for the fourth grouping of ten places you can take creative writing workshops and classes online in 2023. I’ve noted the format (e.g., video meetings; asynchronous text; email; etc.), genres, and whether I’ve taken a class there by marking them with a heart ♥.
For tips on how to select and make the most of your online creative writing learning experience, check out part one. And if you're curious about my experience with any of the classes or workshops I've taken (marked with a ♥), don't hesitate to reach out and ask me about it.
Once again, in no particular order…
