Next Up at the Workshop Loop--Witch Archetypes

As you know, I'm busy this month teaching my "Beyond Fangs" class at Savvy Authors. So the fabulous Heather Long, my Technical Handmaiden over at the Witchcraft & Writing loop, will be teaching our April class. I've got to tell you, people, this one looks FASCINATING. I'm going to be popping in and out too, don't worry, but I'm looking forward to learning a thing or two myself.

Here are the basics. Go sign up for this class right now! You don't want to miss it!

  1. Are these workshops done online or on sight? If on line - how do they run? At certain times or...?

  2. The ones given at my loop are done online. You pay for the class, then you are sent an invite to the loop a couple of days before class starts. We post the classes first thing in the morning (EST) and people can respond to them whenever it is convenient. Then I (or whomever is giving the class) pop in and out over the course of the day to comment and answer questions.

  3. This sounds a bit interesting and would like more information. When do classes commence again, since I just found out about these classes? What is the cost and where are you located?

  4. Velvet--
    The Archetypes class is over, but we are doing new classes all the time.
