Non-degree; mentored correspondence courses
No application deadline
For nearly 50 years, the Christian Writers Guild has trained people to sell their writing. The Guild offers a variety of email correspondence courses with practical instruction under the mentoring of a seasoned writing professional.
Get ready to enter the world of professional publishing. For each Guild course, we’ll match you with a hand-picked mentor — a widely experienced writer and editor who offers practical advice and coaching in response to the assignments you complete.
When you enroll in a course, we mail you a textbook with a series of lessons designed to instruct you in that area of writing. Each lesson concludes with writing assignments to enable you to put into practice what you just learned. You have two weeks to complete each lesson (four weeks at the Craftsman level).
You place your assigned writing in a Word document, which you email to your mentor. Within a week your mentor responds with coaching, correction, encouragement, and some editing — all designed to enable you to move ahead to your next lesson. Between the instruction and the twice-a-month professional feedback, it’s no wonder CWG students advance more quickly in the craft than those who attempt to learn on their own.
