Our Philosophy: Writing Classes Should be Affordable and Amazing
At Writers.com, we’re passionate about the art and the craft of storytelling. And we want to help others with their practice of writing, whether the goal is clear communication, personal fulfillment or heartbreaking works of staggering genius.
Online classes let us cherry-pick the best teachers – all published, working authors – and bring them to computers across the globe. We’ve taught students working on cruise ships and volunteering for remote non-profits, and even one wintering-over high in the Arctic. As a result, we’ve built a vibrant, international community of writers, from beginners discovering their way to seasoned professionals who want to deepen their work and opportunities.
Direct weekly feedback fuels this process. Each student receives personalized attention, tailored to his or her level. Nothing improves writing faster than well-tuned edits and advice. Except practice, of course. And we’ll make sure you get plenty of that too, building momentum and good habits to endure long after your class ends.
Founded in 1995, Writers.com was the first writing school on the Internet. We’ve had decades to fine tune our approach, customer service and course offerings. And it shows: over a third of our alumni return to study with us again.

Writers on the Net / Writers.com: What’s In A Name?
Our school launched in 1995, a time when few people referred to sites by their URLs. So “Writers.com” was our address and “Writers On The Net” was our name: one that you’ll still see on your credit card bill. But we’ve now embraced the simplicity of “Writers.com,” across our site, blog, newsletter, Facebook profile and Twitter feed.
