Hi Everyone! The Clockworks Academy Werewolves Course is live as of last Friday. It is not too late to join, but if you miss out on this iteration of the Werewolves Course you can be reassured that it will be offered again in about eight weeks!
As some of you already know, the Dracula Course was scheduled to begin today but for a number of reasons I’ve decided to push it to next week. That’s good news for you because it means you still have time to sign up!
Register for the eight-week course on Bram Stoker’s Dracula here! Whether you’ve read Dracula ten times before or have never read it at all, whether you’re obsessed with vampires or don’t really see the appeal, there’s something for you in this course and I think you’ll be glad you joined!
My free bonus class talking about the 1931 Dracula movie, directed by Tod Browning and starring Bela Lugosi is up now! Watch this lecture, share it with your friends, and then consider taking a full course on Dracula with me, beginning the first week of July!
My free class on the 1935 movie Bride of Frankenstein, directed by James Whale and starring Boris Karloff as the Creature, is up now. Watch this class and get a taste of what Clockworks Academy courses are like!
I’m excited to announce a two-week private poetry writing workshop at Clockworks Academy. This is a one-on-one workshop, and begins whenever you register.Read More
A new session of the Frankenstein Course began on Monday, and so did the first session of the Dracula Course!Read More
In one week here on Clockworks Academy I’ll release a special bonus ninth week of the eight-week Frankenstein course. I’ll spend a class talking about the 1931 film adaptation of Frankenstein, starring Boris Karloff and directed by James Whale. This class will be available to everyone; you will find it on the public lectures page here at Clockworks Academy.
Frankenstein 1931 is available to rent via YouTube, Amazon Prime, and iTunes, and probably elsewhere too! Watch this classic film, then come join me for a full class exploring the movie in relation to the original text!
The lecture will go up on April 1, but this is not a prank.
Well that’s a little ominous.
What I mean is that on April 15 the second course from Clockworks Academy will begin! This course will focus on Bram Stoker’s Dracula, and I’m very excited about it! Sign up now and come join us!
Building this website, this school, and this business has been exciting and a little bit nerve-wracking. I've been wanting to do it or something like it for a long time, and it has been a big step (made up of a lot of little steps) to make it real.
I chose Frankenstein as the first course to offer because I knew I would enjoy teaching it and I thought people would enjoy studying it with me. And today the Frankenstein Course goes live to my first class, and I find out if I was right!
If all goes well over the next eight weeks then Frankenstein will begin again on April 15th, and I’ll add Dracula, beginning at the same time.
If all doesn’t go well I’ll have some difficult decisions before me. So here’s hoping it does!
Thanks for reading, and I hope to see you in a Clockworks Academy course soon!
The Frankenstein Course begins a week from today and I’m hard at work preparing everything! I’m really looking forward to this course, and I hope those of you signed up are looking forward to it too! If you’re not signed up yet, it’s not too late yet, but time is running out quickly, so sign up now!
For those wondering, the course will feature eight hour-long lectures in both audio form and video (with accompanying slides and visual aids), as well as access to a private discord server for ongoing class discussion, and two or three (depending on student interest and scheduling) live seminars. All that starts when the first lecture goes live on Monday February 4th!
I’ll talk to you then!
Well what do we have here?
I am planning on fully launching this site and this business soon, and the first course offered will be Frankenstein.
