The instructor is dedicated to his work, has mastery of his subject, and gives great attention toward helping his students realize their stories.
Fiction Writing Ela Rudolph
The class was truly inspiring. I spent most of the week thinking about our next writing assignment—the class was the high point of my week.
Fiction Writing Leah Frankel
I'll probably go back to them many times over the coming years.
Fiction Writing Ranjan Das
vice president, software company
I learned a lot about how to approach writing. It was analogous to a drawing course I had taken once—everyone can fiddle around, but if someone shows you a different way of looking at things or approaching things, your quality and depth improves.
Fiction Writing Kyla Terhune
As dull as the concept of an online class might seem to the uninitiated, I found this advanced fiction class to be an immersive, exciting way to further my writing goals.
Fiction Writing Robert Tocalino
This course has given me the boost of self-confidence that I desperately needed.
Fiction Writing Joni Shavlik
personal trainer/aerobic instructor
I love the online experience, and each class has been better than the last. I like the freedom of an online class, and as I have taken progressively more advanced classes, I have discovered the class interaction has also increased and been very good indeed.
Fiction Writing Victoria Butler
The instructor created an atmosphere so dynamic. Each student opened the door to his or her writing potential.
Fiction Writing Sheldon Rifkin
This course reignited my passion for fiction and writing. I was looking for a match, and this course lit my fuse.
Fiction Writing Bill Willard
I really learned the basics—plot, character development, voice, tone…. Everything that was promised was delivered.
Fiction Writing Elese Sullivan
freelance business writer
I learned the power of starting. The schedule of submissions made me start, and wow—I finished two short stories in ten weeks.
Fiction Writing Suzanne O'Donnell
The instructor has given me the much-needed kick start, the motivation, and the desire to follow through and finish my writing goals, one line at a time.
Fiction Writing Aaron Mindel
Very inspiring; I always started my homework on the bus, immediately after leaving class.
Fiction Writing Victoria Porter
If or when I get published, it will be the direct result of this class. The pace and the spacing of the material were well-planned. There was time to soak up the information presented and to apply that knowledge. This class was well worth it.
Fiction Writing Tom Rizzo
sales communications consultant
I loved the experience of taking this class. For someone who wants to write but lacks confidence, this is a wonderful vehicle. The fact that I have already signed up for Fiction II and this is only Week 9 speaks for itself.
Fiction Writing Carllie B. Fox
I have been thinking about writing for several years but could never seem to get off the mark and do anything about it. This course got me in gear and made me write.
Fiction Writing Hayden Dent
This has definitely been a positive way to work. The deferred-time aspect provides the flexibility necessary for an international group. How else could people stretched across some twenty time zones from Ohio to New Zealand via Europe and Israel work together?
Fiction Writing Tim Bowler
journalist and translator
I think it was a blast. I got an avalanche of material I could utilize for a long period of time, and loved the convenience of not having to go anywhere to do it. I lead a busy life and found it to be a fabulous asset to sit down at any time and read or critique or go over a lesson.
Fiction Writing Marcus Colelli
house painter/stand-up comic
I've taken writing classes in half a dozen universities and none have been as comprehensive and informative.
Fiction Writing Mark Alpert
I found myself able to let go. I did terrible in school when I was younger...a traditional classroom is the last place on Earth I belong. But I'm a totally different person in an online classroom. It was great for me. If high school had been online I would have graduated at the top of my class.
