Challenge,  On Writing

March Sadness Special

With All Conventions Cancelled…

No one traveling. And all of us stuck at home making sure we do not spread this virus, it’s time to turn attention to writing and learning.

So that money you had set aside to head to a conference or writer’s retreat, how about some online workshops instead? Allyson and Kris both suggested we give writers some real deals on workshops right now to help out through these coming stuck weeks.

We want to encourage you to stay safe and learn and write.

So to do that stated goal, we are doing something very special for the next 48 hours only.

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

That’s right, on anything available on Teachable right now, just use the code below and get it half price.

So stock up on workshops and lectures to get you through the next month. Or even grab the Lifetime Workshop Subscription for half price.

The code to get anything on WMG’s Teachable at half price is:


And feel free to pass this around to any writer stuck at home during the next month. But remember, this offer ends sharply at 5 pm West Coast Time on Thursday, March 19th

And By The Way…

Allyson in her weekly blog outlines some specials WMG is offering on books, so check that out as well for great things to read.


Yes, you can buy more than one, but you just have to do it one at a time because Teachable has no shopping cart.

    *jaw drops* Oh, wow… This is very, very generous of y’all!

    My husband and I have already talked about how he can spend more time with the children and let me squeeze in a little more writing time over the next few weeks. (Also gives me a break, since there is no escaping my little people, no matter how much I love them!) Now we need to talk about taking advantage of this amazing opportunity to keep learning! I’ve been wracking my brain trying to figure out how to pay for the Decade Ahead bundle. This…may very well be doable.

    Thank y’all so, so much for all you do and have done to teach and help writers! Stay safe.

    Wow, thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity to keep learning. I’m sharing the news!

  • Harvey Stanbrough

    What E.R. said, Dean. This is just incredibly generous of you and Kris and Allyson. I’ll spread the word far and wide and urge folks to take advantage, both for themselves and to “pay you back” for your incredible kindness and generosity.

      Thank you, Harvey. Just wanting people to have a focus on the writing and learning instead of fearing dying all the time. More fun in made-up words at this point. (grin)

  • Michelle

    Thank you Dean and Kris for this generous offer, and also for breaking out the Pop-up classes again. I was able to get the one on worldbuilding, etc., into the dark, and I’m excited to start.
