For students ages 13 and up under a valid license

Webinars are live, video-streamed meetings where the instructor, Daniel Schwabauer—affectionately known as “Mr. S.”—discusses topics related to the course or to writing in general. Students can use the chat messaging feature to interact and ask questions.

August through May, we offer about two writing webinars per month. They are usually on a Tuesday (sometimes Thursday) evening at 7:00 p.m. Central. We also post recordings of recent webinars on the Student Forum for a limited time so students can watch any they have to miss.

Mr. & Mr. S. enjoy bringing a healthy mixture of teaching, caring, and humor to young writers.

Mr. & Mrs. S. host webinars to provide another layer of support and instruction for students. Throw in a little bit of humor and a lot of caring with all that teaching, and you’ve got The One Year Adventure Novel webinar experience.

Access to watch these free webinars comes with the purchase of the curriculum, but watching them is not a course requirement.
