LOTS of Tuesday Tips: Getting Your Writing in Shape

So, whilst engaging in my early morning marketing (Okay, checking Facebook), I realized that the newest issue of WOW! Women On Writing was out. Wheee!

There are TONS of great articles, as always, but I’m a little partial to Get In Great Writing Shape for FREE! When I found all those university classes for free, I knew that info would make an exciting article. Because who doesn’t want FREE stuff?

So, I added a few more resources for FREE stuff for writers: conferences, books, professional memberships, and all those great giveaways that make me go wheee! Wheee! Wheee!

I hope you’ll go wheee, too. Because really, who doesn’t love free stuff?

Looking for a FREE Writing Class?

I’ll just cut to the chase here, because I know everybody’s busy writing, writing, writing. But maybe you’d like to try your hand at writing something a little different? Maybe you’re an essay writer who’d like a few pointers on fiction writing? Or a short story writer who’d like to try poetry?


You can take writing classes from top colleges and universities for free. Um, let me repeat that, just in case you weren’t paying attention to the free part. YOU CAN TAKE WRITING CLASSES FROM TOP COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES FOR FREE. And you can take them online, in the privacy of your own little home, in your own little pajamas.

And while I’m mentioning free college courses, you might be interested to know that in many states, folks over 65 can take ANY class in a state college or university for free. In fact, the qualifying age varies from state to state, so check your hometown college and university for more information.

So, if you’re looking for a sweet writing class, for FREE, here’s a great site to get the information all in one place. And won’t you feel grand when you tell your friends that you’re studying poetry at Yale?

(See Junior Hall? He’s smiling and pointing at Juniorest Hall. He can smile because Mom and Dad paid for his college degree, the one he got in creative writing, penning a ton of poetry. Pffft. On the other hand, Juniorest Hall, sitting around in pj’s all day, is not a pretty sight. So I guess it all works out in the end. Except that I still don’t understand his poetry. Maybe I should take the Yale class.)
