The start of a schoolyear has always been my favorite time to readjust old writing habits and invest in something that will sharpen me.
I’ve taken classes, joined communities, read books, and attended seminars.
But there are two writing resources I come back to again and again. These classes and communities have sharpened and shaped me most.
No matter where you’re at in your writing journey, you’ll find good company in The Habit Membership.
I’m looking forward to starting a Habit class this Tuesday called Writing with Hobbits. Jonathan Rogers will be using Tolkien’s The Hobbit to help writers hone their skills in worldbuilding, tone, imagery, setting, and more.
The class includes live lectures, writing exercises, and cohorts (one for adults and one for middle- and high-schoolers). The cost is $69 for non-members.
I know from experience that JR is a mighty good teacher.
And be sure to check out these free resources:
You probably know that I’ve been changed and inspired by Brett Harris and Jaquelle Crowe Ferris– founders of The Young Writer’s Workshop. I’ve been a member since it’s birth and now work as Jaquelle’s assistant, managing YWW content.
Things are happening in this corner of the Internet. Big things. Small things. Beautiful, God-glorifying things.
Young writers are growing.
And this week, registration is open! This only happens a few times in the year, and I can’t think of a better time to take a step forward in your writing.
