No matter where you live, you can take a writing class! And it’s truly affordable. Choose from:
online (virtual) classes
in-person (physical) classes
offsite (special location) classes
Online classes are held via Zoom, a videoconferencing system that’s as simple to operate as clicking a link (assuming your computer or phone has a camera and a mic). Once you’ve registered, a link to access the the class will be emailed to you.
If you live in the Central New York area, consider taking an in-person class. The Always Wanted To Write Studio is located in Syracuse, NY, inside the historic Delavan Center, a former iron carriage factory turned artists’ warehouse.
The AWTW Studio has been described as “magical,” “soothing,” and “a space I never want to leave.” I call it my adult tree fort, decorated with hanging paper lanterns, original fine art (ranging from my Delavan neighbors all the way to a friend on the Isle of Skye in Scotland), and displaying 180 linear feet of shelf space — a custom-designed library wall of books.
From the overstuffed purple chairs and a hideous (but nap-alicious) turquoise recliner to the table seating five (where I teach), it’s a place that welcomes any writer at any level, even if you’re an absolute beginner.
A few times a year I offer writing overnights, weekends, retreats or immersion workshops. These I call offsite classes and they offer a change of pace from the usual writing routine.

Linda, it’s great that you have such a variety of offerings! I may try the 550 daily that would help make writing a daily routine. I just started 14 wk online course for biz development, and the online biz I just launched requires a lot of time and attention. I’m writing things for it that aren’t related to real writing!
I can’t commit to anything new this month, and already plan to attend my (formerly)regular monthly writing class Tuesday 12th. As you may know, I don’t like writing prompts!
Thanks for the info, I’ll see you in 2018!
