Great information about plot and scene structure. The information about revision was entirely new to me - thank you! The exercises were good and difficult in a good way that helped me hone my writing.
Great course to take as the first step in the sequence of the "Creative Writing" certification. Exercises are fun, professor provides useful methodology, load is manageable for someone with a day job.
Thank you for giving me some concrete guidelines. I enjoyed following along without doing the assignments. Grateful to be able to be a part of the learning.

I do wish the instructor had gone into a little more detail about creating a full plot. Maybe offered some ideas on tools to help with development.

I found the lectures to be useful. However, the assignments were not always clearly communicated, and the peer feedback was inconsistent at times.

The course is a good introduction to creative writing. I found it useful and well strucutred, but I have to say to me it was a little too short.
Excellent course. I would have liked to have an assignment to write a longer story using all the course lessons. A full story with each scene.

Un curso muy completo y enfocado a principiantes. Se recomienda usar grupos de whatsapp con los estudiantes que puedas para compartir tareas

Good course. Got chance to read some interesting stories while reviewing peers. Discovered what I was doing wrong while writing stories.

This course was really informative and inspiring. It enhanced my creative writing. I expect for more courses with extensive contents.
par Michelle S•
Easy to follow and exercises were helpful to better understand the classes and to motivate towards more interesting writting. Thanks!
I only wish that the videos would be longer, have a better production quality, I'd like to see not only slides but also videos, etc.
par Cristina B•
It was a good learning method and I appreciate the lessons and the invited speakers that share so greatly from their experience.
par Nyema J•
This is giving me a methodology and moved me more towards enriching my characters and showing the story as opposed to telling it
par Beth P•
I enjoyed the structured assignments that provided prompts and especially liked the guests who joined the course along the way.
par Tracy B•
The course instruction helped me develop my story more clearly. I do wish that there was some review other than just by peers.
par Emma R•
Love this resource and Brando and his colleagues. Would have enjoyed longer videos sometimes, they were always pretty short.
par Joel D P•
Pretty good course, learned a lot and honed my skills as a writer. Really enjoyed the lessons and would love to learn more.

I loved this course, very enlightening. The instructor was very insightful, and the feedback received is extremely helpful
par Jing Y•
Clear and concise. Instructional. The only thing that I hope is to get more examples from the course except explanations.
par Lynn U•
I liked the ABDCE formula. It directed my thoughts and ultimately enabled my story to take a more satisfying direction.
par Yaqing H•
The content is interesting, but not rich enough for a course. I finished all the videos and assignments in only 2 days.
par Diego D C•
highly inspirational, clear, to the point. just sorry that assignments are only for fully registered course followers
par Tom S•
content is exclllent but i found some of the peer assesment wasn't as constructive/helpful as i would have liked.
par Analee P•
I would have preferred to also get feedback from the course instructor. The peer reviews were sometimes wanting.
par Hemant R J•
Brando was excellent in specifying the methodological way of writing stories. Thanks for the 21 point checklist!
par Kislay A K•
Short, pithy descriptions; to the point advice/ suggestions with leeway to alter the structure. Worth the time.
