Long Story Short School of Writing Partners with CFU, Colorado Free University

LSS Writing School has been chosen to open the Online Writing School at Colorado Free University, a 35-year-old institution based in Denver. CFU, a leisure-learning center, offers a wide variety of brick and mortar classes at their Denver location in The Lowry Center, 7653 East 1st PlaceDenver, CO 80230. Anxious to expand it online curriculum, CFU gave an exclusive right to LSS to offer their entire catalog of courses in the online arm of its school.

Directed by Denise Cassino of Conifer, CO and Linda Barnett-Johnson of Lewistown, MT, LSS opened its virtual doors in October 2005. Cassino says, “Since that time, our growth has been phenomenal and this was the logical next step. ' The writing school is a spin-off of the ezine, Long Story Short, dedicated to the promotion and advancement of writers worldwide.

Cassino and Barnett-Johnson met in an online writing class in 2001. They became virtual business partners in 2003, but have never met. They have an amazingly compatible business relationship and friendship, which has further expanded with the Long Story Short Publishing Company, an ebook publisher.

Known as the “nice” publishers in the highly competitive world of online publishing, they have 3000 subscribers to their ezine and publish its newsletter announcing the stories, articles and poetry published each month. Named four times as one of Writers Digest’s 101 Best Websites for Writers, they have published thousands of stories, articles and poems over the last five years.
