    Workshop Sale!!

    First Full Workshop Sale Since November!! We only do sales now when we open a new Shopify store and we had no plans for a new store any time this spring. Thus no workshop sales. But then the WMG Writer Store arrived and it is getting nifty stuff added every day now. Right now you can even get a t-shirt that says, “Setting Would Be Nice.” So with the new store firing up, we can do a Teachable workshop sale. So now if you want some class or workshop, you can grab it at half price. Everything on WMGTeachable is 50% off. Everything. And below are some really cool workshops.…

    Watched the Half-Marathon Runners…

    …Go Past Our Building… If felt right not being with them. I respect that distance and will train correctly for it next year. So watching them some was incentive. It is now past 4 am and I have been at this computer far too long for my arm, so going to just remind you all about the new ART OF THE NVELLA classes on wmgwriterstore.com Here is all that information again: ART OF THE NOVELLA series is 4 different classes limited to 20 writers each one. 9 weeks of weekly classes with assignments, then four weeks to write a novella in that genre with what you have learned. Three months…

    WMG WRITER STORE is Born!!

    Just Getting Started… With The Art of the Novella… For years, Kris and I have wanted to figure out a way to teach in-person workshops on the art of writing a novella. But nothing we came up with worked. Too expensive, far too long, and so on. We do the novella add-ons not to teach, but to just give the writers who took the in-person workshop a chance to write a novella and have Kris read it. So as we were putting together the brand new WMG Writer Store (www.WMGWriterStore.com), Kris started wondering why we could not do what she called “pretend-in-person” classes teaching novellas in four different genres. And…

    In Person Workshops Almost Sold Out!

    Here Are Details of the Three In-Person Classes… The anthology workshop is a really fun workshop (held this year for the first time since the pandemic). In April and May you write four short stories for four different live anthologies. Then four or five editors will be reading stories and actually talking about them and buying them for live anthologies right there in front of everyone. The editors will talk about why a story works or does not work for them. Fantastic learning listening to professional editors disagree. And every writer attending will have read everyone else’s stories, but can’t say a word. Only the editor’s opinions matter. This is…

    Sale! Just Three Bundles!

    Last Day of Extended Lifetime Workshop Sale… But start of a very limited sale of just three bundles… (Lifetime workshop sale information below.) But first, over the last three days I have answered three different basic copyright questions. Now understand, I do not mind answering questions. Not at all. But my one question response does not help a writer learn copyright, the most critical element of being a writer. Last year we did a weekly class of four videos a week for all 52 weeks called BITE-SIZED COPYRIGHT. It is still available and I think one of the most important classes we have every given. 208 videos on copyright for…
