Leigh teaches romance writing at Gotham Writers Workshop, which provides Internet classes in genre fiction. Classes run ten weeks. Each week a lecture, an assignment, and a discussion question are posted, and students check in at any time of day and from anywhere around the world. The instructor comments on homework, and each student puts up work for comments from other class members. Each class is limited to 16 students.

Many of Leigh’s students have gone on to publish multiple books
with commercial romance publishers.
