Summer Learning Workshop Sale

We Are Still Stuck At Home…

At least for a little while longer, with the exceptions, of course, of the brave health care workers, police, grocery store clerks, and others struggling to help out. Everyone is talking about reopening, but no timelines yet because the virus won’t let exact dates happen.

So, almost all of us are staying at home still, after months, making sure we do not spread this virus, to give the hospitals a chance to beat this thing. And slowly things are getting better.

But to stay sane through this last part, we need to keep focused.

Back in March (a very long couple of decades ago), Allyson and Kris both suggested we give writers some real deals on workshops to help out through the coming weeks. And we did with what we called the March Sadness Special.

Then in April (just exactly a month ago, but it sure seems like ten years ago now), we gave writers deals again on workshops to help out. We called that one the Spring Training Sale.

So now, as much as possible, we want to encourage you to stay in, stay safe.

So, we are going to do one more workshop sale. And with luck, this will be the last one. At least we all hope that in a month or two things improve even more and we can all get back to parts of our lives.

Both the first two sales were only two days and we heard that many, many writers missed them. This time we are going to open the sale for five days.

And we really, really hope never again. We want us all to get through this virus and go back to at least a new normal as soon as possible.

But we are not there yet, so for the next five days, until 5 pm on Friday…

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 workshop PUBLISHING 101.

And if you have credits from purchases on a Kickstarter, please just write me with the workshops you want and I will get you a code.

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

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

The code to get anything on WMG’s Teachable at half price for the next 5 days is:


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

But remember, this offer ends sharply at 5 pm West Coast Time on Friday, May 8th


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.

Give yourself or a friend the gift of learning and stay sane as we get closer and closer to the end of these rough times.

So, in summary, just go to WMG Workshops on Teachable, hit half price, and find a workshop (or workshops) you are interested in, hit purchase, put in the code SummerLearning2020 and you will get it for half price.

And please stay home and stay safe and keep learning and writing.

    This is such a great deal! I have the bad luck/poor timing to purchase workshops in between the last sale and this one, but that’s OK. This gives me the chance to pick up a couple lectures I’ve had my eye on. And between this sale and the Kickstarter stretch goals, I’ll have plenty to work through.

      Yeah, we never expected to do a second one, let alone a third one. But got a hunch this is done now as the world will be focused more on reopening in a month or two than anything. We just want to help writers stay focused inside until recovery can really start.
