Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) December 15, 2011
Almost a third of college students are taking classes online this year, according to a new study by the Babson Survey Research Group and the College Board. The Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis has tapped into this growing desire for accessible and flexible education, offering 26 online creative writing classes starting this January.
Loft gift certificates are a great way to introduce the writer in your life to Loft online classes. As the nation’s largest and most comprehensive literary center, the Loft has always valued the community of writers fostered by its classes. This commitment to cultivating connection forms the basis of Loft online classes, making them distinct from other online writing classes.
And now, regardless of location, anyone with an internet connection has access to the Loft literary community. Writers of all levels and all genres—whether looking to sustain or jumpstart writing habits—can find a host of online opportunities through the Loft.
From literary fiction to picture book writing, poetry to sci-fi, food writing to fantasy, classes are led by award-winning and professional writers who are experts in their genres. Classes include real-time chats, vibrant asynchronous discussions, peer critiques, writing exercises, and focused feedback from the teaching artist. Through each of these class elements, participants engage in a rich, collaborative, and supportive online experience.
Flexible and accessible, the Loft’s online offerings make it possible to create room in any schedule for writing, and offer a new way to approach the notion of literary community. To learn more about the environment of creative collaboration and discovery at the Loft visit http://www.loft.org.
