News and More Stuff from Chez Rambo
Happy end of the year to all of you!
UPDATE: This went so well and everyone was so grateful that I went ahead and extended the sale through the end of the year. There are new links below to coupons that should let you access the classes at the $5 price. Let me know if there are any issues!
We are wrapping up the end of the year with a special promotion
for THREE DAYS ONLY, December 24-26, by offering all Rambo Academy for Wayward Writers on-demand classes, including the ones from Ann Leckie, Rachel Swirsky, and Juliette Wade, for $5 or less.
Yep, that’s right. For less than $50 you can, in fact, buy access to every class we currently offer.
Did I mention it’s only through midnight of the 26th, aka three days (well, a little more since this is going out Sunday evening) only?
This is a let’s-close-out-2018-with-a-bang promotion and won’t be repeated again until next December (if we do).
Here insert me talking in a Thunderdome announcer’s voice and repeating that vital phrase, THREE DAYS ONLY.
Seriously, though. If you want to pick up one (or many) of the classes, now’s the time, and you have lifetime (well, Teachable’s lifetime, which may or may not match mine or yours) access. And pass this offer along to as many people as you like, particularly your writing groups and friends. The more the merrier.
Want a live class? There’s still a few slots open in Stories That Change Our World as well as all the other live January classes, including opportunities with Seanan McGuire, Rachel Swirsky, and Fran Wilde.
And look for plenty of new Rambo Academy material there in the coming year, including on-demand versions of the Flash Fiction workshop, Punk U: How to Write -punk Fiction, Rachel Swirsky’s Speculative Poetry class, James Sutter’s High-Speed Worldbuilding, a class from Diane Morrison on time management and writing in odd moments — and more.
