Leigh teaches classes and workshops online and in person, independently and through the world-renowned Gotham Writers Workshop.
Romance Writing (on-line)
Gotham classes include Romance Writing 1 (for beginning romance writers) and Romance Writing 2 (for advanced romance writers). Each class is a ten-week session, limited to 16 students and offered to participants around the world, on-line with 24-hour access. Each student receives feedback from the instructor and from other students, offering a broad reader reaction to the individual’s work.
Many of Leigh’s students have gone on to publish multiple books with established commercial publishers such as Harlequin, Montlake Romance, Kensington, Sourcebooks, Belle Books and many others.
Classes are offered about four times a year.
Specialty Workshops (on-line)
Leigh’s independent workshops include specialty subjects such as plotting, creating gender-believable characters, handling transitions and backstory, and Start Writing Romance, originally offered through Barnes & Noble University.
These on-line workshops are independent study, self-paced, available on the writer’s own schedule.
Note: Leigh’s specialty workshops are moving to a new site, and new topics are being added. If you would like to be notified when they’re available, please use the contact me form or sign up for the Leigh Michaels newsletter.
