Where Writers Learn

Welcome to Where Writers Learn, a site offering free writing lessons and other resources for aspiring creative writers, as well as those who must write at work or in school.

I'm a writer whose passion is teaching writing, and in my thirty years of teaching I've developed a new approach that benefits both beginners and more experienced writers. I call this approach the Mastery Path, and have given that title to the section of this site where you'll find the lessons.

The Mastery Path approach is simple, but not easy. It's the same learning method used by top athletes and musicians to build their skillsódedication to practice.

In the lessons I explain, first, how the Mastery Path approach to learning skills works; then I discuss the skills writers need; and then I offer practices to help you build those skills. I have presented the lessons in order, as I would in the classroom, but you can certainly find your own way through them. On the left-hand side of the Lessons page is a table of contents of all posted lessons.

I hope you will try out all the practices, and post comments, if you like. If you have questions, I'll try to answer them as quickly as I can.

New lessons will arrive approximately twice a month.
