I am a beginner wantabee author and publisher, first steps are elementary, as I need. Self paced, life can get in the way. Instructors are wonderful, as are the guest speakers and interviewees Thanks.
This course introduces writing in an easy to understand way. The interviews with published authors are very insightful as well. The exercises are a great avenue to practice what the Mooc instruct

Excellent information and overview from first draft to writing a query letter. I work in publishing but not in children's publishing, and I picked up a lot of new tricks from this course.
Very fun, and interesting. Only thing that was lacklustre for me was the peer-feedback. I gave a lot of specific feedback and didn't really get anything back. Other than that, awesome.

I learned some helpful tips on how to edit and how to better structure a story. But there were assignments particularly on the last two that should have used assignment two or three.
par Rhiannon D•
Very simplistic in places and preaches their style as if it is the only way sometimes too. However it's a good grounding in the basics and there are some useful exercises.
Basic course for budding writers.
Also, excellent interviews with other published writers, editors and playwrights. It was the highlight of the course for me.

El curso es muy interesante, da las pautas para que un escritor principiante pueda organizarse y es enriquecedor las distintas voces de diferentes escritores que convoca.

It's a nice course for begging writers, it helps you lots of things, like characters, settings, plot and more like enquiry letter and publishing.

This course is fun but informative. It gives practical knowledge of writing skill for a very curious group of readers, the children. Recommended.

I enjoyed the guess interviews. A few times I looked them up on google to see what other books they had written. It was nice to see real life ex

Loved this course! I just wished there was a better system for peer reviews, because I couldn't get any helpful tips or feedbackthrough them.
Great introductory creative writing course.
Need to create a more structured approach for people when they are giving feedback.

I'm an English teacher, so much of this was second-hand to me. However, I'm sure it would be hugely beneficial to others.
