So, fellow speculative fans and aspiring authors, you may or may not have known that Brandon Sanderson, author of the Mistborn trilogy, The Way of Kings, Elantris and several series for teens and children, is also a professor. He teaches writing classes at BYU.

You also may or may not have known that he made one of those classes available for free on Youtube. I listened to this lecture series and LOVED IT! It’s about 79 videos long. I listened to them constantly, addicted to the very end. Walking, driving, washing dishes–I was listening.

Some of the material is really basic, but it’s always interesting to hear a successful author talk his game. Also, some of the lectures delve into industry insider info and those are definitely worth hearing, if you’re thinking about publishing your work either traditionally or DIY.

BUT WAIT, before you rush off to watch these videos, I have some exciting news. In this recent blog post, Sanderson announced that he is releasing a series of newly recorded and updated videos!!! The videos will be released once a week.

Highly recommended, folks. Here’s the first of the new series:

Aaaand I’m gonna go watch it!
