    Workshop taught by Dean Wesley Smith with help from Kristine Kathryn Rusch.

    Again, this will never be offered anywhere else. Just here.

    Learn Along Licensing Class

    EXCLUSIVE TO THIS CAMPAIGN!

    The Learn Along Licensing Class was a class offered in the spring of 2019 that followed Dean through his first time at the major Licensing Expo in Las Vegas. His preparation, his time at the Expo, and videos afterwards about the learning.

    This class lead into the year-long Licensing Transition class that is going on now (and that is still available to sign up for). This class has been closed for new sign-ups since last July, but for this Kickstarter campaign, we thought we would open it up at the same price in case anyone wanted to go through the videos and pictures. Over 50 videos and countless pictures.

    Plus you will get the novel Thunder Mountain by Dean Wesley Smith

    You want to start thinking about how licensing can improve your income sources and maybe you are thinking of going to the Licensing Expo this May in Las Vegas, or even next May, you need this. You can only sign up for it through this Kickstarter.

    Year of the Cat Study Class

    YEAR OF THE CAT is a 12 volume anthology series edited by Kristine Kathryn Rusch and Dean Wesley Smith. This was first offered on our last Kickstarter campaign.

    All 100 stories in twelve monthly ebook collections, with an introduction in each collection by the editors.

    This workshop on Teachable will last for one year and every month will have a video or two about every story, looking at what the author did, why the story works, and so on.

    This is a writer's dream.

    Dean Wesley Smith will talk about each story in THE YEAR OF THE CAT from the writer perspective.

    You will also get the electronic version of each collection included in this reward.

    Over the year that will total 100 short cat stories. And Dean will do a study video about every one of stories. Only positive as to why the story works.

    Collection #1 will ship in May 2020, so the first study will start right after that.

    You also get electronic version of Thunder Mountain.

    Shared World Class

    Shared World Class on Teachable has been going now for over half a year, with a lot of videos about different aspects of shared worlds available. It will take some time to go through all the videos and catch up, but worth the time if your interest is in shared worlds and how they work. And how to write for them.

    But now, going forward, the class focuses on how to write shared worlds, including writing for Cave Creek anthologies. And it is still possible to join the fun since the class will be going on for some time yet.

    This is not discounted in any way, since everyone else in the class paid the full $500 and it would not be fair to discount it now. And it is still open to sign up on Teachable.

    But for doing it here, you do get a free electronic copy of Dean Wesley Smith's Thunder Mountain.
