If our goal is to teach as many people as possible to tell their stories, we must reach out to as many locations as possible. And we have begun!
We plan to offer our full curriculum in Rogers in 2015 as well as screenwriting and writing family history.
Our Maumelle and Little Rock associate programs headed by Thomas Eaton, Ed.D. begin in January 2015. More on that soon.
We will offer an affordable curriculum of workshops at convenient times in as many locations as possible.
We have dreams for Harrison, Branson, Fort Smith, and Tulsa. By the end of the year, we hope to have taken our vision and our method outside of Arkansas.
We believe our approach is unique because:
- It’s affordable. Price compare with other writing programs–even online ones–and you’ll find that we are the best value.
- It’s condensed. 30 hours of instruction. Anyone who truly wants to write can spare 30 hours over the course of several months.
- It’s accessible. We welcome beginners and established writers and keep our environment happy and nonthreatening.
- It’s complete. Our director’s goal was to present everything she learned in getting an MFA in five days. This is not just a hit or miss workshop. This is a curriculum of everything a writer needs.
An important part of our plan is to provide aspiring writers in associate workshops with a reference book to help them retain what they learn and to apply it to their own stories.
We will share our materials with credentialed associate teachers/writers in many locations, so they can teach their own programs on their own schedules, These teachers will not be employees or partners or franchisees of the Village Writing School. But they will be associated with us through our shared mission and our permission to them to teach our copywrited materials. We will help them with marketing, social media, and a web presence. Together, we will reach many students and empower many stories.
A credentialed teacher ANYWHERE who has a passion for sharing the craft and art of writing will find that our materials give them EVERYTHING needed to teach a student to write a beautiful story. If you or someone you know has credentials for teaching creative writing, contact us.
