Back to School

It's Back to School time!

No, not that kind of school.

I thought I was finished with school when I finished college. Hah! The more I write, the more I find myself in search of instruction. Whether it's an introduction to something new - a class on writing for magazines, for example - or brushing up on the basics, it seems I am always on a quest for knowledge. No matter how much I've learned or how much I've written, I want more.

What about all of you? Are there any writers out there that feel the need to take a class or two? Are you brushing up on basics or learning something new? Whatever the reason, there is a class out there waiting for you. So today, we'll explore some links to online classes that can give you the knowledge you've been in search of.

This list is just a sampling of what's out there. Fiction Flurry and it's contributors do not endorse nor do we have any relationship with any of the listed courses.

Writer's Digest - Classes such as Fundamentals of Fiction Writing and 12 Weeks to a First Draft will help you on your way to finishing that novel.

Absolute Write - Several workshops are available and are being taught by published authors - always a good thing. - has been offering online writers classes since 1995 and bills itself as the first writing school on the Internet. The list of course offerings is extensive.

The Writers Workshop - Although based in Seattle, this workshop has many online classes as well. Introduction to Travel Writing and Introduction to Poetry are just the beginning.

Holly Lisle - Holly is the author of over 30 novels and her site has huge resources to help aspiring authors. How to Think Sideways and How to Revise Your Novel are the two major courses, but there are more - as well as many freebies.

Dramaquill's Weblog - in what could be called kismet, Dramaquill's Weblog just posted a marvelous piece on FREE online courses. There is lots of information here so be sure check it out.

If you are looking for a class, hopefully these links will point you in the right direction. And, of course, do your research before giving anyone online your hard-earned money.

Has anyone taken an online writing class? Did you love it? Hate it? We want to hear from you.
