Consider this a reminder that you’ve got two more days to take advantage of this end of the year offer:
- Sign up for two single-session classes ($99 each, $89 each for former students) and get a third one free.
- Sign up for the Writing F&SF Short Stories class or Advanced Story Workshop ($199) and get a single-session workshop free.
Right now I’m running a special on the online Writing F&SF Stories class that’s starting this Saturday, December 1. It is six Saturday mornings, 9:30-11:30 AM PST. I’m also offering an early sign-up rate on January and February classes. Pay by December 15 and get the early rate. It’s been fun planning this round and trying to come up with some new and interesting stuff as well as repeating the successful classes. So here’s the list: Writing F&SF Short Stories, Editing 101, Flash Fiction Workshop, Literary Techniques in Speculative Fiction, Building an Online Presence for Writers, First Pages Workshop, (new class) The Art of the Book Review, and (new class) What You Need to Need About Electronic Publishing.
Want more details about the classes? You can find descriptions, dates, and costs on the Upcoming Classes page, where you can also sign-up to be on the mailing list!
