Student Quotes

See what our students are saying about their Gotham classes.

The course gave me the push I needed to write again. I feel like I've gained a lot in writing skill and the reading has exposed me to a lot of writers I didn't know existed. I can't think of an easier or quicker way to access feedback from other writers. I can't wait for the next course…. I enjoyed the chat room specifically when our instructor and then a member of Zoetrope publishing joined it. The information I got from those two sessions was priceless.

I shopped around quite a bit on the Web before signing up, and this class has exceeded my expectations and given me the impetus and confidence to keep writing. The site is very well organized and made the whole process enjoyable. I think Gotham has set the standard for what an online fiction writing class should be. I will be back for more!
