Online Freelance Writing Classes

Sign up now for WITS Freelance Writers' Mentoring Program!

Writers in the Sky Creative Writing Services (WITS) will allow a limited number of students to join a mentoring program designed to bring new writers into the freelance writing business. During these weekly teleseminars, Yvonne Perry, the owner of WITS, will provide coaching that allows students to build a real-world portfolio while learning the craft and business of freelance writing. Weekly assignments will be given to the group and graded individually. Students will be given encouragement and help in specific areas of need.

A one-hour teleclass will be conducted each Wednesday during which Yvonne will discuss the lesson and explain the assignment for the coming week.

This newbie class will begin on Wednesday, January 14 at 7 p.m. and run through February 18, 2009. For more information, see our Writing Web site.

Materials required for each level include: access to a computer with a word processing program compatible with MS Word 2003 or 2007, email service (preferably Outlook), long distance phone service, and a desire for learning.

An entry essay will be required before admission is confirmed. These classes will fill up fast, so start writing your 500- to 750-word essay now. Contact us to be placed on the January 2009 newbie class roster.
