At the heart of WVU is an active, supportive writing community representing all levels of writing skills and interest. Our members represent over 100 countries from across the globe; the majority have been with us 5 years to 15 years. Most join for the courses, but stay for the groups.
Within WVU are many writing groups and workshops. Each has its own specialty, personality and writing goals. New members will always find a home in our community.
Over 300 writing courses and workshops are included at no extra charge to members. Classes may be taken at scheduled times with fellow members, or as self-study courses anytime.
Included is an extensive array of communication tools for members, including forums, blogs, private messaging, inter-community mailbox, chat rooms, and personal profile pages where members may share photos and videos.
Quick, friendly support is readily available whenever needed. Help requests are often responded to within minutes. Our FAQs, Knowledge Base and Support Forum cover most questions, so answers are always easy to find.
We offer a wide variety of resources for writers, including reference tools, a bookstore and our Character Building Workshop.
Currently, we're introducing a new line of advanced courses inspired by traditional university MFA programs, but without the expensive tuition. Our MFA courses are included with memberships. The course are 2-18 weeks long, are flexible, and fit busy schedules.
