Online Programs 

 

Online events from the WLT allow you to experience top notch classes and programs from the comfort of your own home. Below you'll find a full list of upcoming virtual programs, including live events that are free and open to anyone (you'll just need to RSVP) and reasonably priced 3-hour craft and business of writing classes taught by experienced instructors.

All of our online programs, both classes and live events, are done on Zoom.

We add new content - absolutely free - every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

How Live Webinars Work

If you'd like to attend a live webinar, all you need to do is RSVP to the event. Just visit the event page and the click RSVP button in the top right of the page. We will send all RSVP's a link to join the webinar the day of.  Questions? Email us at member@writersleague.org or call us at 512-499-8914. 

How Online Classes Work

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.)
