Online Workshops

Online Workshop Details ALL WORKSHOPS, CLASSIC WORKSHOPS, AND LECTURES ARE NOW ON TEACHABLE.COM Structure of every regular workshop: — Each week for six weeks video lectures will be available for the writer to listen and watch in their own time.  (Video lectures will be about 4 to 7 or so minutes long each and there will be about six or so of them per week depending on topic.) — Each week will include an assignment which will need to be sent as an attached file within five days. We will work personally with each writer or book designer, and send the assignments back to each person before the end of the week. (The assignments are not mandatory, but suggested to get the most out of each workshop.) — Then each week we will record a short (5 minutes or so) video talking in general (never giving names) about the assignment for everyone in the class to watch. Then the following week’s assignment and lectures will be available. — Each new video will be released on the same day of the week as the first one for six weeks. So if the workshop starts on Tuesday, the new weekly video sessions will be released every Tuesday. — Once you are signed up for a workshop, you can come back over the years to review at any point you want. CLASSIC WORKSHOP STRUCTURE — The classic workshops used to be regular workshops, but you can sign up for them, and go through all the videos as fast as you would like. All six weeks are there. The homework assignments are still there, as well as some of the responses from a previous workshop, but you do not send in any assignments. You just do them for yourself. And you can come back over the years as often as you want without any extra costs. Classic workshops and lectures are at: Standard workshops are all SIX WEEKS LONG.
