We are interested in any of our class topics in a webinar form. We are looking for single session webinars and webinar series.  In particular, we are interested in creating groups to work through information in multi-session webinars.

We are open to a range of teaching styles including forum and chat-based mixtures. Our workshops are conducted in an online forum with private chatrooms. We also encourage webinars and video classes.

We are accepting proposals for workshops of all lengths including one, two three, or four weeks, and three to five-day intensives 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. SavvyAuthors is open to considering first-time workshop presenters.

Preference will be given to instructors willing to present exclusively for SavvyAuthors in scheduling and stipend percentage. Preference will also be given to new workshops (never before presented online) or workshops that haven’t been presented online in the 18 preceding months. For all other workshops, we ask for a commitment to not present the workshop online within three months of presentation through SavvyAuthors.

**NEW!** This form now offers an upload option for you to submit multiple classes!
