Online Writing/Blogging Classes Available in NW Arkansas

The following two classes are being offered by writer/blogger Lela Davidson in Rogers, AR this month:

Blogging Basics: Article Writing Workshop
Writing online content is not difficult, but there are a few tricks to creating content that gets read. Whether your goal is getting paid to write, or making your personal blog more engaging, learning how to write solid blog posts and articles will help you succeed. This 3-hour course teaches students how to generate and structure the top 10 types of articles, or posts, that online editors are looking for. This is the content that is most likely to bring traffic to websites. Students also learn the difference between current events and evergreen content, and why most websites benefit from a combination of both. This is a hands-on class where students practice the methods taught and leave class with work plans to advance their own projects or blogs, and a draft of one type of article. This class is designed for writers of all experience levels who are new to writing online content.

Class fee: $59
Held at John Brown University Rogers Campus, 2807 Ajax Avenue
Thursday 1/20, 6-9pm OR Saturday 1/22, 9-noon
Each class stands on its own - the content is the same in each class.

Beyond Blogging: How to Make Money Writing Online Content
Writing online content is a great way to hone your writing craft, get published, and make money. Lela left a traditional job to begin writing online in 2006. This 3-hour course covers the basics of where to find writing jobs (and determine if they are legitimate or a scam), how to write the most common types of web content, apply for work, and find your niche. Students also learn about the various types of revenue streams available to online writers, as well as how to use free blogging software as an online resume of your work. This class is designed for beginning and experienced writers.

Class fee: $59
Held at John Brown University Rogers Campus, 2807 Ajax Avenue
Thursday 1/13, 6-9pm OR Saturday 1/15, 9-noon
Each class stands on its own - the content is the same in each class.
