We’re constantly looking ahead in our program given the nature of course planning, but it still comes as a shock when another year’s end approaches. We’ve had another successful year with many, many changes (more on that in our next blog post). As we look to 2023 and beyond, we continued to be excited about the future of writing as a craft, career, and personal endeavor.

We don’t have a lot of new courses for this Winter, focusing on some revisions in current offerings as well as the return of our Writers Studio in person (also with come changes in the courses and style of that event). Additionally, if you or someone you know wants to enhance their craft and professional skills, we’ll continue to have free online seminars each quarter on a variety of topics.

This workshop will teach you the basics and help craft a series synopsis, brand, and at least three episodes to support a pitch to digital publishers.
