Upcoming Online Classes

Cartoon of Cat Rambo

Done at PenguinCon, but alas I don't have the name of the artist!

New! On-demand content! I’m using the Fedora platform to convert the live class content in classes you can take at your own pace. Right now, the available on demand classes are:

Most of my classes, though, are live sessions. All live classes have a limit of 8 students unless otherwise stated. Classes are taught online using Google Hangouts. A computer with a good Internet connection and microphone are necessary; a webcam will enhance your class experience considerably.

The cost for a single session live workshop is $99 for new students; $79 for students who have formerly taken a class with Cat. The cost for the F&SF stories workshop is $249 for new students, $199 for former students.

To reserve a class, mail Cat at catrambo@gmail.com and state which class or classes, the section numbers, and whether you will be paying by Paypal or check.

If payment has not been received by three days before it takes place, you will be moved to the waiting list.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will you be teaching other classes in 2016? Yes, unless circumstances change unepxectedly, I will be doing more classes.

You left out my favorite class! Will you teach it again? Probably, but you should mail and let me know you’re interested. Usually I move classes off the slate because demand is low (or there are other considerations).

Will you come teach a class for my friends and I? Yup. If you’d like to set up a special session for your writing group, drop me a line.
