Online Writing Classes 


Online classes from the Writers' League of Texas allow you to take our most popular in-person classes from the comfort of your own home. Learn about the craft and business of writing from instructors who teach in MFA programs and other university creative writing programs. Classes offer specific exercises that will inspire you to get to work on your own writing.

How Online Classes Work

These are online versions of our most popular in-person classes. Once you register for the class, you'll receive an email with detailed instructions. You should expect 2-2.5 hours of direct teaching and 30 minutes of Q&A (for three hours total). If you need to leave the class early or can't attend the class on that date, all registrants will have access to the recording for one week after the class date. No microphone or camera required, just an Internet connection capable of streaming video.

A couple of days before the class, you will receive an email with login information. Plan to log in to the online platform several hours before the class so that you can update your computer's Flash or any other settings required to access the platform. (Updates usually take only a few minutes, but you don't want to wait until the beginning of class.)

Do you have a great plot idea, but you're stuck after page fifty? Are you in love with your characters, but they seem to just sit there?
