ONLINE WRITING WORKSHOPS: SPONSORSHIPS, PARTNERSHIPS, ADVERTISINGOnline Writing Workshops seeks sponsorships and partnerships with publishers and other companies or organizations who are interested in supporting (and benefiting from) a writing workshop. We offer workshops for aspiring writers in various genres and also general fiction, and have received many inquiries about other types of writing (e.g. young-adult fiction, mystery, and literary fiction).
All our workshops feature ratings systems and submissions categories that are specific to the workshop's target type of writing, as well as a collection of writing-related online resources useful to the workshop's members. Requirements for participation are customizable depending on the sponsor's needs, and there is ample opportunity throughout the site to promote an organization or specific books or authors.
All our workshops include a discussion group, a monthly newsletter, e-mail-based submission and review alerts, personalized lists of favorite authors or submission searches, and an easy-to-use, friendly interface. Administration is easy with our back-end software. A monthly "Editor's Choice" review of a top submission is a popular feature of these workshops, and can be provided by OWW or by the sponsor.
Arrangements with publishers can include special benefits, but preserve our members' rights to their work. Publishers may or may not participate in the Editors' Choice process, but are apprised of the nominees and final Editors' Choices in either case. Sponsoring publishers have no special rights regarding submissions, Editors' Choices, or EC nominees. Sponsoring publishers may choose to announce up to two of their current titles via the workshop's promotional spots on frequently visited pages and send up to four e-mail messages per year directly to the membership, but we do not use banner ads, pop-ups, or other forms of obtrusive advertising.
We also accept short-term advertising for products and services that can benefit our membership.
If you are interested in sponsoring a workshop or partnering or advertising with us, or have questions about our policies, please contact us.
