Challenge,  On Writing,  publishing,  workshops


We are Still in Covid.

I honestly last spring never would have predicted this.

Back when WMG Publishing did what we all thought here would be the last workshop sale in May, we had an expectation that as things opened up, we would all be able to slowly go back to a changed, but new normal life. And that sort of happened for some.

Sort of. But by July it was clear that most of us were still locked up, wearing masks, and doing our best to move forward in some way or another. So WMG Publishing decided to do another sale the first week of July, thinking that would be the last one, but no, and then we did another the first of September thinking the same thing.

But now as we are into November, with the holidays upon us, we still all need to stay home, be careful, and focus on other things besides what is happening in the world.

Focus on our writing and learning.

As I said two months ago, we can control our learning and our writing.

Back in March (a very, very long eight months ago), Allyson and Kris both suggested we give writers some real deals on workshops to help out through the coming weeks. And we have offered this sale every two months since.

Now, two more months have passed, Covid is worse that even two months ago, and once again we want to encourage you to stay in, stay safe.

And a great way to do that again is to focus on learning publishing and how to be a better storyteller. Indie writers are actually making more money in this time of crisis because we can write and put out books and people want to read.

So we are going to do one more sale of everything on WMG Publishing’s Teachable.

And we really, really hope never again. 2020 will be over and with it we hope these sales. We want us all to get through this virus and go back to at least a new normal as soon as possible.

But, sadly, we are not there yet. And WMG Publishing wants to help you all once again get through this, so for the next ten days, until 5 pm on Tuesday, November 10th…

Every WMG Publishing Workshop, Lecture, Pop-Up, Class, or Subscription on Teachable will be HALF PRICE!

That’s right, on anything available on Teachable right now, (hit all courses to see everything) just use the code below and get it half price.

Yes, that includes the new workshops COVERS 101 and MAKING MONEY WITH YOUR WRITING, plus the almost new PUBLISHING 101 and KILLING CRITICAL VOICE. Plus the new Pop-Ups and and any of the challenges.

So, stock up on workshops and lectures to get you through the winter.

Or even grab one of the Lifetime Workshop Subscriptions for half price.

The coupon code to get anything on WMG’s Teachable at half price for the next 7 days is:


And feel free to pass this code around to any writer. We are all still stuck with this virus, so we might as well all keep learning.

But remember, this offer ends sharply at 5 pm West Coast Time on Tuesday, November 10th.

To see a curriculum of all the workshops and lectures and orders to take them in, go to Workshop Curriculum.


Yes, you can buy more than one, but you just have to do it one at a time because Teachable has no shopping cart. And you can use Paypal or any credit card.

Also we have an offering where you can buy three workshops or lectures or pop-ups at a time and take them at any time if you like.

AND SINCE THIS IS A HOLIDAY SALE… Give yourself or a friend the gift of learning and stay sane as we keep slogging through these tough times. There is no time limit on when you have to do a workshop either, so you can give them as gifts to other writers hurting more than you are.

So, in summary, just go to WMG Workshops on Teachable, find a workshop or Pop-Up, or Lecture, or subscription you are interested in, hit purchase, then on the next page put in the coupon code HolidaySale and you will get it for half price.

And please stay home as much as possible, stay safe, and keep learning and writing.

      You are welcome. We all need something to stay focused during these crazy times. We’re just trying to help make it possible for some writers.

    For those thinking they might be able to stretch their budget a bit. I can’t recomend enough the Lifetime Subscription to all Workshops. There’s such a huge amount of info for you in this subscription that it will be paying you back for decades to come. It’s well worth the initial investment.

    • Kate Pavelle

      Quite. And if you want to develop some good habits and accumulate inventory, I would recommend the Story Challenge to earn a lifetime membership of your choice (1 story a week for a year, 52 total.) It takes a bit of patience, but it was well worth the effort!

      • dwsmith

        Yeah, that is a no lose and all win challenge. No matter how many you get done, you have more inventory and if you don’t make it, you have credit for two regular workshops and if you do make it, choice of a Lifetime subscription. Total no risk, all win.
