I’ll be posting not only my own workshops, such as the Social Media series I did at angelthoughts.org, but also links to other online writer’s workshops that are free. I’ll try to give short descriptions of them when possible.
Social Media Series (angel Graham-Author Workshop)
Social Media Tools that are available for the use of those willing to take the time to investigate and put to use the many tips and ideas available to make your blog more accessible and perhaps get it moved up in the search directories. This is an ongoing series at the moment. Stay tuned for more updates.

Critique Circle is an online writing workshop for all authors, whether they write literary fiction, genre fiction, articles or short stories. Our purpose is to provide a place for writers to give and receive feedback on their work, and thereby learn from one another. The Critique Circle also includes forums as well as helpful writing tools for manuscript progress, submission tracking, character generation and more.
Workshops can be an invaluable resource to writers as they are a great way to get feedback and suggestions on their manuscripts, as well as providing a social forum for interaction with other writers. Online workshops such as the Critique Circle have the added advantage of being accessible at any time and from any location regardless of geography.
