Welcome to the third installment of my ongoing list of where you can find 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! This week, one of the listed locations comes to me from the fantastic poet Nancy L. Meyers--thank you, Nancy!
Keep reading for the third set of ten places you can take creative writing workshops and classes online. 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…
