Live classes are taught online, are limited to 15 participants, and require a reliable Internet connection, although in the past participants have logged on from coffee shops, cafes, and even an airplane. A webcam is suggested but not required.
Free scholarships: If you cannot afford a class but really want to take one, apply for a Plunkett Scholarship. Each class has three slots reserved for such students, and the sole criteria is that you can’t currently afford the class but would like to take it. To apply, mail me with your name, the class name/date, and a brief statement about why you want to take the class. QUILTBAG and PoC candidates are especially encouraged to apply. The Plunkett Scholarships are named for Edward Plunkett, who wrote as Lord Dunsany. Scholarship recipients will be notified the week before the class.
Note from Rambo Academy founder Cat Rambo: I’ve been teaching writing for over three decades now. Over ten years ago, I started working with what would become the Rambo Academy for Wayward Writers. Since then literally hundreds of students from across the globe have come through my classes; many are out there publishing away and I’m cheering every time I see one on a table of contents or on an award ballot. If you’ve got questions about the classes, please don’t hesitate to mail me with them. Here’s some testimonials for a few past ones.
