Workshop Sale AGAIN!!

Back to School, AGAIN… Workshop Half-Price Sale

As I said two months ago, I honestly never would have predicted this last spring. Not in a million years. Not many did and those who did warn us of this, none of us listened to. We just couldn’t imagine being locked up for a year. But at least now we have some hope on the horizon with the vaccines going out. But they won’t do much good especially over the coming months.

Back when WMG Publishing did what we all thought here would be the last workshop sale way back in May, 2020, 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. Remember that silliness? 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. No again.

And then we did another in November, with the holidays coming at us. It seems we still all needed 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 have said before, we can control our learning and our writing. We can’t yet control when it will be safe to go back to some sort of normal.

Back in March 2020 (a very, very, very long year ago), Allyson and Kris both suggested we give writers some real deals on workshops to help out through the coming weeks and months. And we have offered this half-price workshop sale every two months since.

Now, two more months have passed, Covid is declining at the moment, sure, but with the new strains, who knows how long that will last. So once again we want to encourage you to stay in, stay safe.

And a great way to stay safe and inside and mentally sane 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. Wouldn’t that be nice if in a couple months this was cleared enough we wouldn’t need this? I’m not holding my breath. Sure, 2020 is over and 2021 is starting with some positive news. Here at WMG Publishing 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. NOT BY A LONG WAYS!!!  Thousands are dying every day still. There are dark months ahead of us in the first half of the new year.

WMG Publishing wants to help you all once again get through this, so for the next twelve days, until 5 pm on Thursday, March 4th…

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.

And yes, it includes the brand new Collection Classes. They are two month long and special and not included in any subscription, but you can get all six of them for 2021. You end up with a collection published doing those.

So, stock up on workshops and lectures to get you through the coming months, make 2021 start off better.

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 12 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.

Around the country, schools are fighting to reopen. That’s why we are calling this sale, “Back to School, AGAIN.”

But remember, this offer ends sharply at 5 pm West Coast Time on Thursday, March 4th.

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.

And for those in Europe or in a few states, taxes are added automatically by Teachable.

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.

One side note: You can 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 workshops or Pop-Ups or Classes or Lectures or subscriptions you are interested in, hit purchase, then on the next page put in the coupon code AGAIN and you will get it for half price.

And please stay home as much as possible, stay safe, wear a mask when out, and keep learning and writing.

    Dean, did you ever do a pop up on making a living with novels? I looked and searched “novel” on teachable and couldn’t find the pop up.

    And you mentioned doing a “Making a Living with Novels” popup in the “Making a living with short stories” popup.

    No big deal. Just curious. Thanks for all you do!
