I really learned the basics—plot, character development, voice, tone…. Everything that was promised was delivered.

Bravo! This class reminded me that I can be, want to be, and kinda am a writer!
Fiction Writing Colleen Kenny
I have read several books about the writer's craft, but the excellence of the lectures written by the instructor for this course stood out for me: She somehow found fresh angles, used particularly apt examples, and provided trenchant advice for writing and revision.
Fiction Writing Angela Hahn
If this instructor had been my professor in college, I probably would have chosen writing as a career.
Fiction Writing Muriel Haber
president & CEO, management real estate co.
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
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
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
Fiction Writing II took my writing skill set to the next level. Whereas Fiction Writing I covered generalities, Fiction Writing II probed deeper, giving more detail and insight into the art of writing. I have benefited tremendously since October, when I enrolled in your writing program.
Fiction Writing Gene Venditti
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.
Fiction Writing Rachel Crain
health spa manager
The one-day intensive workshop was excellent. It allowed me to test the waters, and then I registered for the 10-week session.
Fiction Writing Tsahi Alexander
A great way to do it when time is difficult to schedule. Also the anonymity is less embarrassing than parading my first fiction efforts face-to-face.
Fiction Writing Bryan Marshall
scientist and teacher
The class was structured very well for someone who was intimidated by sharing their work. The environment was warm and safe, which made the workshop process relatively painless.
Fiction Writing Jenny Spaulding
I like that the online class setup allows me the freedom to pursue the lessons and homework when I want (and doesn't require me to commit a certain night a week).
Fiction Writing Sarah Burgundy
I found myself surrounded by others who value good writing as much as I do.
Fiction Writing Louis Anzovino
I started writing with the first exercise assigned, and I really enjoyed it. I've been writing every day.
Fiction Writing Andrea Morcone
The structure of this class is fantastic. I think that it's very easy to navigate and it really keeps you working. Everything was timely and very interesting to me.
Fiction Writing Karen Cevallos
I learned a great deal…I have already recommended Gotham to others.
Fiction Writing Larry Nelson
retired law enforcement officer
The instructor was exceptional in his lectures, musings, and personal critiques of the students' work. He was somehow able to make what had previously been unclear to me crystal clear.
Fiction Writing Kim E. Revay
I have gained a better understanding of my abilities and where I need to concentrate my efforts. The instructor kept things light and understandable.
Fiction Writing Mark Ferrara
I love the way the course was taught in an organized form with clear topics each week. It made writing seem achievable!
