Working Writers Offering Seasoned, Real-life Instruction
“Those who can, do. Those who can’t, teach.” Or so the old saying goes… Except at Writers.com, where our teachers are published, working writers, who are also experienced writing teachers. They’re passionate about sharing their experience and paying it forward to help others. And they put that philosophy into practice every week, by offering direct feedback to each student. In a world of cheap Q&A-only workshops and massive open online courses, we’re staying true to the ideals of mentoring and human connections.
Unlike other schools that divert large amounts for administration and marketing, the bulk of the tuition you pay for a class through Writers.com goes directly to the teacher. We skip the bells and whistles, keeping our overhead low. That means your course fees go towards getting the best teachers possible, who can give your work the biggest boost.
