Great information about plot and scene structure. The information about revision was entirely new to me - thank you! The exercises were good and difficult in a good way that helped me hone my writing.

Great course to take as the first step in the sequence of the "Creative Writing" certification. Exercises are fun, professor provides useful methodology, load is manageable for someone with a day job.

I found this course very helpful and informative. I was not very good at plot and determining what my plots where before I took this.

I loved this course. I still refer to it. This course has been brilliantly designed and triggers you to follow it without a stop.

Un curso excelente. He aprendido a organizar la estructura de mis textos literarios y a hacer revisiones significativas. Gracias COURSERA por esta oportunidad.

LOVED IT. Very practical and grounding. Inspiring too.

The lectures and prompts were excellent, but I didn't find the peer reviews to provide me any insightful feedback. I got mostly brief answers, and I feel peer reviews are the most advantageous way to grow as a writer. Perhaps add a way to grade peer reviews to ensure the proper effort is given?
Also, the mobile app is buggy and really could use an update.

The course was very interesting, gave me a lot of ideas, and helped me to see my way to trying to write something longer. The one thing I found not so good was the 'shop-talk' with the instructors of the other creative writing classes. There was too much repetition (if you do all these classes). It would be more interesting to hear OTHER people, writers, and also editors (another point of view).
Also, for ALL these classes, I'd appreciate more tasks. The tasks are interesting and help, so more would be great.

This was the first Creative Writing course that I have ever taken and I thought it was fun and good a teaching the basics.
