Thanks, thinkpink; it is a great option, and I'll bet we'll be seeing a LOT more online classes and workshops opening up.

The list is up to 30 now! And in case you didn't see it when it originally ran, I've added the link to my guest post on Dear Editor on things to consider when choosing an online class.

I want to let everyone know about some online workshops that are starting in the next couple of days. These are offered by a new venture called Write Space. They also offer in-person workshops at their facility in Houston. http://www.writespacehouston.org/online-workshops.html

More venues for online courses have been added. I can't believe how this list has grown. When I started it, there were only a few sites that offered online classes or workshops. Now classes are offered from 39 organizations or individuals. :stars3  http://vonnacarter.com/wordpress/?page_id=9417

Helen, as soon as the Houston conference is behind me, I'm going to sign up for one, too. I love conferences, retreats and workshops, but I need to stay at home for a while!

This list has been updated for 2016. Nine online workshops/classes listed for 2015 have dropped off, but a few new courses have been added.  :crossedfingers that some of those courses that closed shop will re-open soon. New venues will be added as they announce their programs.

Several new classes have been added over the last few months, including a new class for teen writers from former SCBWI Oklahoma RA, Anna Myers, author of 19 novels for young people.

There are now 49 online classes/workshops listed!

This page has had a major overhaul!

The list of online classes and workshops is at 50 and growing.  :bricks To make it easier to locate classes for each genre, I have made a sortable table with the age groups clearly identified by each class offered. Please stop by and have a look!
