A well thought out course that was very illuminating. Not sure about the complexity of week 2's assignment, but overall good value.

I found this course very helpful as a step along the path to improving my writing. I really liked the course director Any Bloom, who has an engaging, calm manner and gave very useful insights into writing about character and creating characters that feel as if they have a life beyond the page. The course is well structured and the assignments well designed to help you to think about point of view and character and I found myself being able to develop a fictional character that I have had in my mind for a while. I really enjoyed the course, thank you very much.

Really great advice on writing character. I have a toolkit I can use now that I think is quite powerful. Thanks Amy.

I had no idea how much I didn't know! I enjoyed the class and felt like I learned a lot. Thank you!
