Allyson Longueira, the publisher of WMG Publishing, asked me to tell everyone about the new online workshop. So here I go.

Starting in September, WMG Publishing workshops will offer a new online workshop called Speed.

It’s not about running or driving or flying faster. Nope, this workshop will help writers write faster and at the same time with better quality.

For those of you who didn’t know, WMG Publishing Inc. not only does a series of books for writers, but also online lectures and online workshops to help writers with craft and business.

The Speed online workshop will be the newest one on the list, and it’s going to do more to help writers than most other workshops WMG Publishing sponsors. The workshop might only help a writer get a hundred words per hour faster. Or it might help the writer get three hundred or more words per hour faster.

Any extra words can really add up over time into more novels that readers want to read, especially if the writing maintains a higher quality.

USA Today bestselling writer Kristine Kathryn Rusch and I will put this together, but I will be the one doing the talking on the videos and answering questions. The workshop will be six weeks long, with five to seven videos to watch at your own pace each week. Also, there is an assignment each week to help you work on some of the topics being talked about.

Most writers find they spend about three hours per week on the workshop, so lots of time for your writing and regular job.

WMG Publishing already has a workshop called Productivity, to help writers get to the computer more often to write. But this Speed workshop will focus only on the actual writing part of things.

So if you are interested in signing up for the new Speed workshop, or want to look at any of the other online workshops and lectures available for writers, stop by
