I loved this course! Extremely useful and hands on. The course instructor was really impressive, both informative and empathetic, both arty and to the point. Totally admired her style of instruction.
The course was very well-structured and challenging. The instructor is very experienced and good, thus used relevant materials for this course, be it the guests, or the assignments, or the examples.

Me gustaría algún contacto con los escritores, y no queda muy en claro el tema de los idiomas, casi nadie te lee si escribis en castellano y yo tuve que traducir todo el tiempo al ingles y desde el ingles
I enjoyed Amy Bloom's guidelines and am keen to create some well rounded characters. Thank you for enabling me to follow along without having to pay ( no evaluation of the assignments).

This course was very interesting and the assignments were good. I thought it relied too much on conversations with other authors but overall it was enjoyable and I learned new skills.

I do not understand why these courses over lap. I finished #2 today, tried to start #3 but found that I had 10 hours to complete the first weeks assignment? Who is in charge out there?

The assignments tend to be very confusing, I understand that they make sense for making characters, the difficulty might just be with the characters, but they are quite confusing.

Coursera technology should improve since many people don't take the critiques seriously, and there's no way to measure someone who just writes 'yes' in every box.

I liked this class, but would have gotten more out of it had there been less conversation videos. I like some direct lecture to cement new knowledge.

This was a good course that helped me broaden my POV writing style, though the assignments were difficult to do, and one was difficult to understand.

I found the content useful but was irritated by how parochial the references to other writers were. There is a big wide world outside of the USA!

Good, challenging exercises. Would have liked more structure in the lectures and more specific tips that could be related to the assignments.

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 less informative than the Craft of Plot. A lot of the assignments seemed to have little to do with the videos.
By Andrea G•
I liked it overall, though there were some glitches and I was hoping that there'd be at least some feedback from course organizer.

I loved this course, but sometimes the assignments weren't quite clear. Apart from that, the teacher is genius and it's great.

Even though I enjoyed the course, I found the description of the assignments sometimes very confusing and lacking in details.
A helpful overall look at character but not particularly deep, still useful even for a refresher when writing something new

The material is interesting and relevant. I found the assignments challenging and the review questions slightly lengthy.

I would like to have notes from the teachers as well (not just from the students).Some further ideas or highlights.
By ALESS D•
good exercises, opend to questions and organized but with a lack of diversity in the ways they explain concepts
By Max H•
the assignment descriptions are very confusing so I'd recommend looking into the forums for help. decent videos
By Ali N•
Enjoyed the lectures, but the assignments were poorly explained and definitely could have been better.
By Tanya D•
This course is very informative, however, I do wish that quizzes were a part of these courses.

The course could have been delivered better, but I enjoyed the challenging assignments.
