The Rambo Academy for Wayward Writers

For over a decade, the Rambo Academy for Wayward Writers has helped some of the best and brightest new genre voices emerge via its on-demand and live classes aimed at writers working in fantasy and science fiction. Each live class has three free scholarships; economically disadvantaged, PoC, and QUILTBAG applicants are particularly encouraged to apply.

Students have gone on to publish novels and amass award nominations and wins, including the Hugo, the Nebula, World Fantasy, and Eppie awards. In creating the Rambo Academy, she’s assembled some of the most talented writers and teachers working in the genre today, each speaking on their areas of expertise.

Upcoming Live Classes

Live online writing classes are usually two hours and range $49-$199. Here’s a calendar listing of the live online writing classes along with other appearances. I am happy to talk about sliding scale.

If your schedule doesn’t accommodate the live classes, check out the on-demand online writing classes, which can be taken at your own pace, and range $9-$29.

To see what live classes are upcoming, refer to the calendar or consult the faculty page to find out what the individual teachers are teaching.

Frequent flyer? If you regularly take classes with Cat and the Rambo Academy, you may want to consider supporting her on Patreon. $5/month and up supporters get free classes as well as access to the Chez Rambo Discord channel, where you’ll find daily chatter, motivation, and community.

Each live workshop has three free slots for students who couldn’t otherwise afford the class, with one slot reserved specifically for PoC and QUILTBAG writers. To find how to apply, read about the Cat’s Plunkett scholarships.
