FAQs: Online Workshops with Chloé

Today is the deadline to register for the Online Memoir Writing Workshop II that begins on Monday, August 2nd. Secure your space today by emailing me with your interest {Chloemiller(at)gmail(dot)com.}

The Online Memoir Writing Workshop I ran in May. If you have done some writing or taken a college level writing or literature class, you are qualified to take the second part of this workshop.

I look forward to your joining our writing community!

Below are the answers to the most commonly asked questions about taking one of my Online Writing Workshops. If you have another question, don’t hesitate to email or post your question under Comments below. I also encourage you to read the course description.

What is the daily format of the class?
The class will be held on Google Groups and meet everyday. The class is asynchronous, which means you can post at anytime instead of logging in to "meet" at a certain hour. (The assignments will all be posted before the class begins.) There will be short reading and writing assignments every weekday. Assignments won’t be given over the weekend; this will be a good chance to catch up/get ahead, if you'd like.

Will there be more than daily prompts and weekly submission of work?
You'll submit smaller pieces everyday and a rough draft and final draft of a longer piece each week.

Will there be any phone conference time or any other connections?
The class will be entirely online. If you'd like to schedule individual writing coach sessions, we can do that.

How many people are already enrolled?
The online workshops are always limited to ten adult students. Often students sign up at the last minute, so it is hard to judge the final enrollment too far in advance. If more than ten students are interested, another section may open.

How do I enroll?
Send me an email {Chloemiller(at)gmail(dot)com}stating your interest. Enrollment will be final once you've paid for the class, which is due before the class begins. You can send a check to my home address, which I will email you, or I can send you an invoice via Paypal for an additional $4.00 fee.

I have a busy schedule and don’t know exactly when I’ll be able to log in every day. Will that work?
We can definitely make it work. Everything is asynchronous and held on a Google Group. You can sign in at any time and complete your work. The assignments are posted from the very beginning, so you can even get ahead, if necessary. Then, when you do sign in, you can catch up on conversations that were happening throughout the day and those folks will do the same to respond to your posts.

I look forward to working together!
