Online Creative Writing Courses

After spending nearly a decade teaching in-person classes on creative writing, I've decided to take the plunge and begin developing online creative writing courses and making them available to the many aspiring writers who visit this site each month.

My intent is to make these online creative writing courses both...

1. Easily accessible to writers of all levels of experience and aspiration.

2. Powerful, in terms of bringing together information, tips, and strategies you won't find widely available elsewhere. The kind of information I wish someone had told me when I first decided to become a writer.


The first of these online creative writing courses now available on Teachable (a leading online course platform) and will show you all you need to know about finding great ideas for stories. Check it out...
