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
