I'm hosting an impromptu live chat tonight. Everyone's invited--it's totally free. You can come by, we'll talk about writing, you can ask your questions, get some feedback.
And mostly--I'll be there to talk to you guys about the Ninja Writers Academy and the year-long program we're offering in 2020. I'm seriously excited about this. Here's what's involved:
Four seasons of small-group workshops. Each season is eight-weeks long. Our seasons for 2020 are: January/February, April/May, July/August, and October/November. Each workshop has a limit of eight writers and one mentor. Each writer is guaranteed the opportunity to read from their work and receive feedback from the other writers and mentor at least every other week. There are also drop-in sessions available. ($1200 value)
A full year of the Ninja Writers Club. This is our membership community. The club offers weekly live chats that will give you access to me and sometimes other guests to answer your questions about fiction writing, blogging, and the business of writing. You’ll also have access to every course I’ve created, including A Novel Idea (my year-long course in how to write a novel), which we work through as a group January through June during a write-a-long when I write a novel right along with you. And any digital product that I create while you’re a member. ($300 value)
Quarterly one-on-one calls with me. During the off months, when we’re not workshopping (in March, June, September, and December), you’ll have the opportunity to set up a one-on-one zoom call with me. The first call, in March, will be longer and more intense. You’ll have the chance to fill out an editorial planning worksheet and return it to me ahead of time and we’ll make a plan for you for the rest of the year during our call. ($500 value)
Access to a private Slack group. Your membership will give you access to a Ninja Writers Academy slack space designated to keep you in touch with other academy students, Ninja Writers mentors, and your workshop groups.
Tonight's chat is a great chance to meet me, get a feeling for the format of the workshops (they all happen in Zoom), and talk to me about whether or not you're a good fit. The Academy has very limited enrollment, because of the nature of the small groups and one-on-one coaching. There are 50,000 Ninja Writers and room for only 100 in this program.
Right now returning students and Ninja Writer's Club members are enrolling. Enrollment won't open officially to everyone else until December. Tonight's a kind of sneak peek preview and a chance to grab a spot at a great price (as a thank you for giving me your feedback!) But that's only for people who come to the call tonight.
