Free Writing Bootcamp

We're excited to announce the first ever Commons Writing Cohort, kicking off January 17th!
Working in tech, we know that communication is a critical skill to master. Whether it's a blog post, an internal strategy document, or even an email to a colleague, communication at work often happens in written form. This means that good writing can really set you apart. So we're offering a 3-week program for members of The Commons looking to build their writing habit, establish their online voice and connect with others in the community.

New Enrollments are Closing Soon!

We finally opened up admissions to new members! We'll only remain open for a limited time and seats are dwindling, so act quickly.

  • If you received an acceptance, start your onboarding
  • If you're on the waitlist, stay tuned for an admissions email
  • If you're not yet on the waitlist, apply below

Join the January 2023 Sprints

We've opened up more seats for the January 2023 Sprints. Why? We sold out of January Sprints seats before the new year, but so many of you remained on the waitlist, eager to join. So - we've officially released a small number of additional seats. 🎉

If you want to join us, act quickly. We don't expect these spots to last long.

We're also now accepting a limited number of Community Only members. If you're interested in joining the community only (instead of participating in a Sprint), you can also apply via the waitlist below.

If you've already applied to the waitlist and are unsure about the status of your application - feel free to email me back.

Here's to an exciting 2023!
