So. This is awkward.
Ask just about any one of my close writer friends how I feel about online writing courses, and most of them will tell you I think online writing courses are rubbish. For the most part. Not all of them, of course: my friend Andi offers great writing courses with a foundation based on community. Ed Cyzewski’s books on writing and faith are on par with the highest quality books out there on the topic. My friend Tsh has offered incredible content, not focused solely on writing but on things that, directly and indirectly, have had an impact on my writing and my life.
There are good courses out there.
Not too long ago, a well-known writer friend of mine asked me, “Why don’t you do a writers’ course? You’ve actually written stuff! That puts you way ahead of most people offering courses.” We had a good laugh about it, but I filed his suggestion away in my brain.
Then, a few weeks ago, Bryan Allain asked me if I’d consider putting together a writers’ course with him. The video below explains our thought process as well as my answer.
So yeah, if you think Bryan is right and want to let him know that we should offer a course, do that here.
Or if you think he’s not right, or you think I’m handsome, or you just feel bad for me, click here.
Or if you just want to stay in the loop and be first to know when we announce the project, let us know where to send those updates by filling in the short form below:
