AVAILABLE COURSES

ONLINE WRITING WORKSHOPS (five week courses): 

To accommodate all of our writers, whether they’re out of the area or struggling to attend classes for whatever reason, our Online Workshop offers what we do best only from the comfort of your home. Depending on your goals and interests, our Online Workshop offers you the option to share your writing with other PBC writers and our instructors, or only with our instructors, for feedback. All ages, styles, and levels are encouraged to join us. If you have yet to put pen to paper, we can help you get started. Our Online Workshop ends in a meeting at a local eatery for those of us in the area to meet, read, grab a bite, and celebrate writing.

Option 1:  Fiction or Nonfiction – $200
April 24 – May 22, 2017: Participants will each have two chances to submit up to ten pages of their original writing for feedback and critique from both the PBC Writers Editors/Instructors, as well as other members of the group. As this is an online course, you will have the flexibility to read and comment on submitted manuscripts every week. 

Option 2: Poetry – $200
April 24 – May 22, 2017: Participants will submit one poem each week for feedback and critique from both the PBC Writers Editors/Instructors, as well as other members of the group. As this is an online course, you will have the flexibility to read and comment on submitted manuscripts every week. 

  • Registration Deadline for FIRST online workshop series is April 20th. However, we will be starting new rounds of online workshops on a rolling basis, so don’t fret if you missed the deadline–we can put you in the next group!
