The Many Ways to be a Writer

Those with writerly aspirations often believe there is a single path to the writer’s life: write book, find agent, get publishing deal, get on Oprah. Maybe throw an MFA and teaching in there. This is a great road if it gets you to your destination. However, there are many ways to be a writer—and even make a living at it. We will discuss the literary path but also work-for-hire, self-publishing, essays, and more. You’ll gain tips on managing your expectations, getting started, being professional, promoting yourself, getting  paid, and creating your very own writer’s life.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.

Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
