We’re excited to add two new titles, Writing 101 and Writing 201, to our free ebook library.
Just Released: New Blogging U. Ebooks
We’re happy to announce that both courses are now offered as free ebooks, available for download in .pdf, .mobi (Kindle), and .epub (iBooks) formats. While conceived with nonfiction writers in mind, fiction writers (we know you’re out there, NaNoWriMo participants!) could find both courses just as useful.
Which ebook should you choose?
Writing 101: Build a Blogging Habit was initially designed as a four-week course. It includes 20 writing prompts, each with its own (optional) twist to push your writing in new directions, from improving your descriptions to thinking about voice and pace. In ebook form, now you can follow the course at your own rhythm and in any order you wish.
Writing 201: Finding Your Story, an intensive four-part course, focuses on editing your unpolished or unfinished drafts into compelling narratives. Loaded with advice and practical tips, this ebook will help you hone some fundamental storytelling skills, like creating powerful openings and writing engaging scenes.
Of course, you don’t actually need to choose — why not give both a try? (Did we mention they were free?)
Thank you so much. Timing is everything, and mine has been unfortunate. I will still sign up when the time comes, for the community, but meanwhile I have the guide is an accessible place. Love WP dot com!
That’s really good, and so useful . Thank you
Thanks for making these available.
Like many people I wasn’t able to do these courses real time. It will great to be able to these off line when I have more time

Thank you. This will prove useful for someone like me who rarely finds time for those assignments. Now I can follow at my pace
– What if we have any questions about the lessons?
– Are they available in other languages, too; or will they in near future?
Thank you! I have beenwanting to get in the habit of blogging . Some days I could jot down ideas then not be able to put them into words. The bad part is I forget to post! my hope is to extend my journaling habit to blogging. Though MY journal is family history I have no desire to have embarrassing writings to be on the Internet for family to read.
I’m loathe to promote style over substance, but, I’ll say it again: I rather enjoyed how the original 101 was packaged: “Zero to Hero”. Shades of Joseph Campbell a la “A Blogger’s Journey”, if you will.
Maybe some of you had wonderful college/uni experiences, but I didn’t, and the idea of “Blogging U.” just really bums me out. I’m sorry, Ben; I’m sure the WP team had their reasons, and there are many bloggers that love this idea, but, it rings really hollow for me. Please take my feedback into consideration– thank you
Ahhhh, great! Thanks, makes making changes easy! Looking forward to writing more travel blogs now!
Thank you so much I will dig right in. You all are the best. A muse is good!
wow! this is what i exactly needed. Thanks!
