Welcome to WMG Publishing Online Workshops

Welcome.  And very glad you could join us.

If you have any issues at all, please write Dean (at) deanwesleysmith (dot) com. We want to make this learning experience the best we can for everyone.

First off, a couple things.

— If you are not familiar with the instructors for these workshops, please click on the tab above and read the instructor biographies. We will be adding in new instructors and new workshops as time goes on.

— If you are interested in the other workshops over this winter that are announced, click under “Workshop Details” tab above. At the moment we have three new workshops starting up. Writing in Depth in March, Audio Books workshop in April, and Think Like a Publisher workshop in May. The first few months of those will fill quickly.

To Get Started

— If you are signed up and are here to just get started with the workshop, click on the workshop title you have signed up for, either under the tab above or on the right side in the sidebar. Then put in your password. Then go from there.

Any problems, e-mail Dean.

Again, welcome to WMG Publishing Online Workshops.

Workshop Schedule

Each workshop is 6 weeks long and is limited to 12 writers

Again, it will take you about four hours per week to do each of these. These are the starting dates of upcoming workshops. All have openings at the moment. (I have bolded the newer workshops that have started this year.)
