As soon as Americans finish their Thanksgiving feasts, the holiday shopping season launches into full swing with Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday.

Now, here at WMG, we’ve been gearing up for the holidays for weeks, as readers of this blog are well aware.

But since today is Cyber Monday, I thought we’d join in on the fun by offering deals for our writers AND our readers.

For our writers, we’re running a special Black Friday/Cyber Monday Sale on our Teachable platform.

From Dean Wesley Smith’s blog about the sale:

The code is HolidaySale to get 50% off any workshop or challenge or lecture or Pop-Up.

We are calling it the HolidaySale (code is all one word) because it is starting on Thanksgiving, going over Black Friday, then through Small Business Saturday, and through Cyber Monday to end on Thursday, December 2nd. Just one week with a major US holiday and three major shopping days in that week.

This is on Teachable.

And yes, you can give workshops as gifts. Just write me directly and I will make sure it happens.

And you can get credit for future workshops as well.

All of the December and January regular workshops are up and available, and we have up at least 54 Pop-Up classes.

The challenges of doing a short story per week, a novel every two months, or publishing a major project every month are available in this as well.

Also the best deals are the lifetime workshops. Six new Study Along workshops coming this next year.

So just find whatever class you would like, hit purchase, and then put in the code HolidaySale on the top of the next page to get 50% off the price.
