Writing courses can be a great way to improve your skills and jump-start your writing process. But not everyone lives somewhere that offers quality courses that fit their time schedule. Luckily, there are lots of courses available online that let you fit the classes in when they work for you. These courses vary significantly in price and how much feedback you get, so pay close attention before signing up. Finding the right class can be time consuming, so I’ve done some of the legwork for you. I’ve only taken classes from one of these providers, so this isn’t an endorsement so much as a stepping stone to help you take the next step.
FREE COURSES: These courses are self-directed and offer no feedback of your writing, but they are free! If you are looking for general skills improvement that you can do on your own time, these classes might be right for you.
Other Features: classes typically four weeks; teacher feedback provided; classes on your own time, but must keep up with assignments. I have taken several classes from Jennifer and highly recommend her.
