How One Story Serves Students of Writing
In 2013, One Story expanded our education programming beyond our summer writers conference to offer inexpensive online generative courses for all levels. Over 1,000 students take classes with One Story now each year, logging in from across the country and around the world, creating a vibrant, virtual community while improving their craft. In an alumni survey, our students reported publishing over 250 pieces of writing in 2019.
One Story believes that writing fiction itself has tremendous value regardless of getting published. Our educational approach is open, curious, kind, and focused on the experience of creation.
"I can't tell you how much I love One Story's classes! What I love is that they are very focused craft classes that allow me to do a deep dive into a subject, such as setting or story structure. They are professionally done and packed with valuable content. I look forward to each new offering."
