The very cool folks over at Cease, Cows have branched out into a new venture and launched a literary community called Lit Demon. Part resource for writers and part online workshop, the site provides “connection, instruction, information, and maybe other -tions we aren’t able to list.” Their workshops include live webinars, one-on-one instruction, and self-paced writing courses, and the rest of the website offers writers discussion forums, a blog on literary issues, editing and book design services, and otherwise general awesomeness.
They already have two workshops available for enrollment: a fabulism workshop (Waving at the Fabulous: How to Write New Wave Fabulism; begins May 10) and a bizarro workshop (A Talking Eyeball Walks into a Bar: An Introduction to Writing Bizarro Fiction; begins June 7).
If neither of these workshops float your boat, sign up at the website anyway and keep an eye on it, because there’s plenty more coming down the pike. In fact, I’ll be running a course of my own later this year.
The whole venture sounds awesome (I know the gang behind all this), and they’re just getting started, so sign up at the website now to get in on the ground floor and watch this thing take off.
And for all you pros out there, they’re still accepting applications for instructors! Fill out an application here.
