TEMPE, Ariz., Feb. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- New York Times bestselling authors Rebecca Skloot, Dani Shapiro, and others are kicking off the first-ever live webinar series with SheWrites.com, the largest global community of women writers online. Enrollment is open at www.shewritesuniversity.com in advance of the program launch on March 2, 2017.
SheWrites.com is pleased to announce the launch of She Writes University (SWU), the first live webinar-based writing program led by an elite faculty of bestselling and award-winning authors and publishing professionals. Backed by the She Writes community of 30,000 writers, SWU offers aspiring and seasoned writers a chance to hone their craft.
"The goal of She Writes University is to educate and inspire women writers around the globe by creating classes from the very best," said SheWrites.com and She Writes Press publisher Brooke Warner. "This is the first time that such a teaching program has been offered to women writers, and writers will come away from the webinars with the publishing tools and confidence to pursue their next steps."
The series will launch with #1 New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Skloot, who commented about the program, "Back by popular demand, I'm excited to be teaching a webinar on structure with She Writes University and helping guide this amazing group of women in their publishing ventures."
Skloot will be joined by an inspiring roster including Aya de Leon, author of the Justice Hustler series (creating high productivity); Dani Shapiro, author of Devotion (turning chaos into art); Asra Q. Namani, author of Standing Alone (connecting to your passions and audience); Natalie Baszile, author of Queen Sugar (importance of place in fiction); Regina Brooks, founder of Serendipity Literary Agency (securing an agent in a crowded marketplace); and Fiona McCrae, publisher of Graywolf Press (publishing against the tide).
Unlike other webinar-based programs that are pre-recorded, participants will have a unique learning experience with a live webinar and Q & A, personal session with the instructor, and printable study guides/course materials available indefinitely.
Individual courses are $99 or $69/course for enrolling in three or more. The complete package of seven courses is available for $350 ($50/course). Courses can be purchased at www.shewritesuniversity.com.
