Learn Online At Your Own Pace With A Private Writing Course
Some projects – and people – require a setting more intimate than a group class. That’s why we offer private courses, allowing students control over the company they keep and how fast they move through the material.
Ideal for time-crunched writers and those tackling sensitive subjects, for writers not yet ready to show their work and those who don’t want to be distracted by others, an independent study allows you to conveniently fit a course’s written lectures and assignments into your life. Your teacher will offer feedback on each assignment you turn in, in addition to fielding any questions that arise.
Most classes have eight or ten lessons and associated assignments. We encourage students to finish within twelve weeks for an eight lesson class, and fourteen weeks for a ten lesson class. A deadline, even one as comfortable as two or three months, helps writers keep up their momentum and progress. We can arrange longer time-lines when needed, making it easy to learn despite big events on the horizon, a rush project at work, a major trip or the birth of a child.
Only the classes listed below are offered as private classes. Some are offered both as a regular scheduled class and as a private class while others are available only as independent study. Private classes cost more than group classes. We encourage you to take a group class if you can: not only is it less expensive, you’ll benefit from feedback given to and received from others in the class. But when a group class doesn’t work in your life, private classes can be the perfect alternative.
