Writers Village University is more than a great place to learn how to write; it's a living, breathing community of writers from around the world. Education should be a life-long pursuit for beginning and experienced writers. At Writers' Village University, you'll get to know a community of friendly, helpful members who have made education an important part of their lives.
The "Village," as writers often refer to Writers' Village University, is a full-time support service and is always growing, offering new courses, seminars and special programs. As a member, you may take as many courses and workshops as you'd like. Many seminars are included too. You won't need to spend thousands of dollars on MFA programs, university creative writing courses and workshops like I've done. -- Best of all, you can fit courses to your schedule and pace. Programs are available for every level of writer. If you're a beginner, you won't have to worry about harsh, intimidating criticisms of your work. We prefer to encourage and build confidence. For more advanced writers, we provide guidelines that encourage detailed, constructive criticism with an emphasis on balance. We know it's just as important to point out the strong points in a writer's work as it is to suggest areas to improve.
WVU's Fiction MFA is back with added courses and more flexibility. New classes begin every Thursday. You can now take courses individually at your own pace. Three levels available for beginning, intermediate and advanced writers. All courses will run in rotation, so if you miss or can't complete one, you can jump in on the next round.
The MFA Program is free to Annual and Lifetime Members. Annual Memberships are $99 for the first year and $69 to renew.
"Writer's Village University is a magically place for me.
I have grown so much as a writer since joining WVU in 9/08. I actually got
a story published in three weeks of joining WVU. I would never have
submitted that story to a website I enjoy, if I did not have the confidence
WVU has given me. Ever since joining, I write or read something to help me
one day be published in book form. Everyday I visit WVU because I love it
that much. I truly feel like I am home. I am a mother of 3, wife, and
work full-time in a law firm. I make time for my writing now. I have
realized writing is my passion. WVU has opened my eyes to my passion and to
what I must do to obtain my writing goal. WVU is my road to my goal.
If you are serious about writing, to learn, to meet new exciting, sweet
people in the best atmosphere possible, you need not look any further. WVU
is a writer's best friend, and then some!"
