Dzanc Creative Writing Seminars
New from the always creation-forward Dzanc Books comes the DCWS, a pay-by-the-hour series offering 1 on 1 creative writing tutorials online with a wide range of incredible authors.
Dzanc Books is pleased to announce our newest program: the Dzanc Creative Writing Sessions. The DCWS is an online program that will allow writers to work one-on-one with published authors and editors to shape their short story/novel/poem/etc.
Sessions will be done via email, and the pricing structure will vary, determined by the time block you sign up for:
$20 for one hour
$30 for two hours
$50 for four hours
Dzanc has compiled a notable stable of great professional authors. From this list writers paying to participate in the DCWS may select an available author to work with. Writers will then have their work critiqued and can discuss in detail their writing and any other areas of writing in general they wish to explore with their DCWS author.
The program is being offered at an extremely low rate – many of the instructing authors volunteering their time to Dzanc do similar work as freelancers and charge much greater rates than are being offered here through the DCWS. Other workshops and writing programs charge a lump sum of several hundred dollars up front. Not only does the DCWS allow you to control and target your expenses, but 100% of the money brought in by Dzanc by our DCWS goes to supporting the writing programs we run for students grades 4-12. These additional programs – currently being run nationally by Dzanc – are offered free of charge to students who would not otherwise be able to afford and experience the sort of writing programs Dzanc offers.
As noted, participants will be able to choose from the list of authors below. We have published novelists, short story writers, flash fiction writers, poets and non-fiction writers available. If you don’t feel the need to select a specific author, we’ll simply assign a writer to you if you select that option.

A wonderful idea and service, with totally reasonable prices and an alternative to the already existing writing school industry. Scrolling through the list of currently available teachers and those forthcoming is enough to get most anybody excited, I think.
I’m always excited by the new things Dzanc is doing to expand not only literary fiction, but readers and writers as people. The profits here go to a great cause, and are beneifical to all: how can you ask for more? If only more houses could follow such an example. Looking forward to seeing the DCWS take off and grow.
