Thoughts about Online Writing Courses.
I think online courses can be great for any writer, not just to hammer those skills that everyone needs to write a story. But also to gain inspiration and confidence in your own ability as a writer.
The writing courses I took was really well thought-out and only ran for ten weeks. I remember my first course Creative Writing One. It was really exciting and eye-opening at the same time, and by the end of the course I had finished the first half of ‘The Naked Sleepwalker’s Christmas.’ among a few other short pieces. It help me in a short time learn a lot about my writing and how I processed information and honestly I can’t stop writing now.
I loved the way the course worked. Starting with an assignment to read and put into practice and then getting feedback from fellow writers. Also great advice as well as feedback from very nice tutors who were always willing to answer any questions. I also loved that after the course was almost over students could put a piece of writing up on the site for others to read.
I was reading some of the stories and poems on the course site the other day. I really enjoy reading them. Here’s the link for anyone who wants to read the great stories and poems in story corner. Congratulations to all the writer/authors on some great stories and poems 🙂http://www.writingclasses.co.uk/StoryFrameset.html
If you’ve taken a course did it help you? Would you recommend it to others?
