4 Free on-demand writing webinars :)



4 Free, On-Demand Writing Webinars


The word free has a nice ring to it, especially when writers are involved. While there are an inexhaustible number of workshops, retreats and conferences targeting authors and budding writers, most will do a number on your wallet. If you’re not in a position to fork over a couple hundred dollars, you may feel there are no resources available to you. Fortunately, that’s not the case.

One of the best ways for writers to self-educate (without leaving the house) is through webinars. As the name implies, a webinar is a sort of seminar held online, usually some cross between a slide show and audio presentation. While many come with a price tag, there are a number of webinars available at no cost. Another great perk: many of these have already aired and have been archived away, ready for you to hit play at your own convenience. That means you can decide when you want to learn and move at your own pace. Whether you want to get updated on new technology or refresh your memory on old techniques, there’s something available right now online that can add to your writer’s toolbox.

We’ve scoured the Internet for the best free webinars aimed at writers, and below we’ve compiled a list of our favorites. Happy learning!


Here’s a great tutorial on e-book publishing and marketing. You’ll learn the basics of formatting and design, distribution, and selling strategies for Amazon. This webinar aired in October 2013 and is available for viewing whenever you want!

While the thought of writing a grant proposal may not tickle your fancy, it’s a skill that’s highly sought after and could land you a job.

Kawanee was born in Alexandria Louisiana but her first real memories are of Russellville Arkansas. She's always loved to read, and has always had an vivid imagination. She grew up in a house where almost everyone read, they didn't need a TV although she could still be found planted on her butt in front of her grandma's TV watching cartoons on Saturday mornings. She made up her first story with her mother when her cat died; it was about where pets go when they die. She continued to create stories from bad dreams she had and her dad would help her change nightmares to stories. They would sit up in a chair until the scary went away. He told her that: "Dreams, good or bad, are just stories your mind makes up. You are the author of your dreams; if you don't like them rewrite them. " She was hooked and has continued to read and write stories drawing from dreams, sights and just pure imagination. She just recently decided she'd like to try and get published and fail than wonder what if. Her story continues but where it goes from here is up to you, the Reader... She hopes you'll join her in finding out where her journey goes from here!

  1. Reblogged this on TheKingsKidChronicles and commented:
    This is great! And there are also many free You-Tube videos to watch regarding the process of writing and marketing. Also, Amazon frequently features books in e-book format as well as print on the subject of writing. Some of my favorite self-help writing authors are Holly Lisle, Cathy Yates, and Chuck Sambuchino.
