Teach for SavvyAuthors

Teach for SavvyAuthors

***Now accepting proposals for the latter part of 2023 AND for our online conference SavvyWriterCon!***

You have worked hard to learn the skills that a successful writer needs to publish and flourish in this current marketplace. You have mad skills around writing craft and business, or maybe you have some key information for specific niche genres. Have you thought about teaching others what you know while learning a bit of extra cash...and getting some name recognition for you and your books while you do?

Savvy Authors is looking for a few great instructors, presenters, and educators.

This year our members have asked for hands-on, craft workshops with clearly actionable content they can use immediately to become better writers and sell more books. See our current list below!

Content We Love

  • New plotting techniques (or a new take), character arc or ways to create authentic/realistic characters, understanding and utilizing story structure, demystifying the beat sheet (or romantic beat sheet), crafting concrete GMC, all types of conflict, adding tension to every page, genre-based topics.
  • Writing elements such as scene and sequel, description, deep point of view.
  • Self-editing best practices.
  • We are open to fresh, unique, and outside-the-box workshop proposals.
  • This year our members are less interested in general interest, marketing, and business.
    • We’re still looking for great workshops on these topics, but there will be a limited number of spots available.
    • It’s critical that all classes on this material provide practical information with a clear application to selling books.

Formats we Adore

We are open to a range of teaching styles including forum and chat based mixtures. See our information about our new on-demand video classes!

Our virtual workshops are conducted in a bulletin board based system online forum. We also encourage the use of video and other media in our classes.

We are accepting proposals for workshops of all lengths including 1, 2, 3 or 4 weeks on a tightly focused topic and longer mentoring programs. Our workshops and classes are open to anyone regardless of membership level. Our stipend structure is based on a split of the class fees. Savvy Authors is open to considering first-time workshop presenters.

NEW!Video Classes!

New for the latter part of 2022, we are offering on-demand video classes!

We are developing a new, on-demand video platform. We are looking for tightly-focused video classes on the fundamentals of writing and other critical business topics. Our video classes will be:

  • 3 to 10, 10-15 minute lessons on key topics described in the Content we Love tab.
  • You provide the high-quality content, clear video and audio, and we will professionally edit, promote, and host!

Business Details

We provide a class roster and detailed accounting.

Our stipend is 50% of fees plus a yearly membership valued at $40. If you are willing to teach the class exclusively for us, we will happily pay you 60% and give you additional promotion and advertising.

We prefer workshops that haven’t been presented online in the last 12 months and ask that if you teach for us you not present the class anywhere else for three months.

On-demand video classes will be paid monthly with our standard roster and fee structure.
