About Writing It Real

Writing It Real launched October 1, 2002, as an online instructional magazine for those who write from personal experience. In the years since then, the site has grown to include online classes, tutorials, a members’ forum, article comments, manuscript evaluations, contests, individualized editing and phone consultations for members about their work. You can read about these opportunities here. Though her many writing classes are offered online, the small groups and frequent interactions Sheila facilitates guarantee participants feel as if they really know one another and Sheila.

Sheila continues to write and edit 48 articles a year for members, posted weekly. Over the years, a skilled stable of contributing authors has joined her and shared their expertise. For a taste of Writing It Real articles, preview archived articles here.

Becoming a Writing It Real member will help you nurture your writing and stay in touch with others who write through our small group classes and article comments. We hope you’ll join us!
