Writers' Educational Community
Writers Helping Writers Since 1995

The first, the largest, the best online university for writers.

 

Writers' Village University is more than a great place to learn how to write; it's a living, breathing community of writers from around the world. Education should be a life-long pursuit for beginning and experienced writers. At Writers' Village University, you'll get to know a community of friendly, helpful members who have made education an important part of their lives.

The "Village," as members refer to Writers' Village University, is a full-time support service. We offer over 300 writing courses and add new classes regularly. As a member, you may take as many courses and workshops as you'd like. It’s all included with your membership. Certificate Programs and Writing Groups are available for every level of writer. If you're a beginner, you won't have to worry about harsh, intimidating criticisms of your work. We prefer to encourage and build confidence. For advanced writers, we provide workshop guidelines that encourage detailed, constructive criticism with an emphasis on craft and author intent.
