Post any complete workshops here. Please specify what topics are covered, how to participate (sign up required? comments? need to download something?) and when it goes on (any time, one time, recurring), as well as the cost. If you have done it before, what did you think?
This one is free, and it will be going on during July 2014. (I don't know whether it will be accessible after that, or whether it will still be free.) Rather than writing from scratch, the focus is on cleaning up an existing draft (though you don't HAVE to have a complete first draft to participate). I have not done this, so I don't know how well it works, but I've seen some of her videos on youtube, and they're very helpful -- and it's free, so worth a try, maybe.

Critters.org - Critters is specifically for critiquing SFF, but it's part of a family of free workshops all managed by the same admin and they all three link to it. You join, you must critique a story 3/4 of the time. They have an algorithm for your critique ratio you must be at 75% for your story to be critiqued (If you're a pro as defined by SFWA then your critique ratio is lower). You can also reset your ratio if it gets too low. If you receive less than 6 critiques after the week it runs, your story will be available for critique after that until you make 6 or more. They promote members stories to the group when/if they are published. Most of my critiques that I've received through here were very helpful. Although I would recommend the week by week over the RFDR(request for dedicated readers) process.
CritiqueCircle.com - It's a good site. You earn credits for each crit that you do, and then you spend credits to get your stories into the critique queue. However, if you go inactive for awhile, then it's hard to get crits again when you spend your credits. They have great(!) critique forms though. It's worth joining just to get access to the formats of their critiques. The newby queue was awesome and got critiqued very quickly, when I went back a few months later and no longer qualified as a newby, I got far less critiques.

mim: I wrote smut to amuse myself, but it forgot to become smut. They ended up fighting instead of in bed. Which was a problem when they were fanfic characters on a site too, actually...

Jᴀy A. Rᴀᴍᴀ 💀🐍: Well, you know what they say about how fight scenes and the other f word scenes are very similar-- they both involve lots of action. >
