We get this question a lot, which is completely understandable! When I first stumbled upon this wonderful organization, I had the same question. We understand that we have a lot to offer, but our menu can be overwhelming. To help guide you towards the best decision, here are a few questions to start with:
1.) What do I want to write?
I have no idea - I just want to write!
2.) Which level are you?
I was an English major 30 years ago
I've written a little
I've taken workshops over the years
I have my MFA in Writing
I've published two books
This is just a sample of the types of writers who join our groups. We're not kidding when we say we have something for everyone who wants to take a creative writing workshop. Similar to genre, you can search our workshop page by Levels, and you'll find the following options:
If you're brand new or studied English in college, we recommend a beginner workshop. If you've taken a workshop at some point over the past few years, and you've been writing on and off for years, an intermediate workshops would be a good choice. Our Advanced Classes require instructor approval. For these workshops, you will submit pages for the instructors to review and decide if you'd be a good fit. The other requirement for these upper levels is some workshop experience.
Remember how I said earlier that I wasn't sure which class was right for me when I joined WWW? Even though I knew what I wanted to write and what my level was, I still wanted to talk to someone on the phone to ensure I was making the right decision. I called the office and spoke with a very nice person who was happy to help me. So please give us a call at 203-227-3250 or shoot us an email at email@example.com, and we will help place you!
