Stanford Online Writing Courses – The Summer Lineup

A quick fyi: On Monday morning, Stanford Continuing Studies opens up registration for its summer lineup of online writing courses. Offered in partnership with the Stanford Creative Writing Program (one of the most distinguished writing programs in the country), these online courses give beginning and advanced writers, no matter where they live, the chance to refine their craft with gifted writing instructors. As you will see, there are a couple of courses offered in conjunction with The New York Times. The idea here is that you’ll learn writing from a Stanford  writing instructor and then get your work reviewed by a New York Times book critic. Quite a perk. And the courses sell out quickly. For more information, click here, or separately check out the FAQ and the testimonials.

Caveat emptor: These classes are not free, and I helped set them up. So while I wholeheartedly believe in these courses, you can take my views with a grain of salt.

  • I’m trying not to be mad, but have looked forward to enrolling on Mon, the specified date, and find now that the classes are closed, apparently full. Please explain. Was this a mistake? Is there a waiting list? I’m an eager quick-pay person for either NY Times/Stanford classes or short story. Thanks for any more information. Claudette Shaw
