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.
The course was informative on how to build, structure and develop the plot of our own stories. It was also very helpful in guiding us through the editing process. A useful course for aspiring writers.

This is giving me a methodology and moved me more towards enriching my characters and showing the story as opposed to telling it

Love this resource and Brando and his colleagues. Would have enjoyed longer videos sometimes, they were always pretty short.

Clear and concise. Instructional. The only thing that I hope is to get more examples from the course except explanations.

I liked the ABDCE formula. It directed my thoughts and ultimately enabled my story to take a more satisfying direction.

The content is interesting, but not rich enough for a course. I finished all the videos and assignments in only 2 days.

By Analee P•
I would have preferred to also get feedback from the course instructor. The peer reviews were sometimes wanting.

Brando was excellent in specifying the methodological way of writing stories. Thanks for the 21 point checklist!

Short, pithy descriptions; to the point advice/ suggestions with leeway to alter the structure. Worth the time.

it was very helpful for beginner like me to realize how the art of expressing through writing works
By Vibeke K•
Content of course is great, but it needs som fixes in the assessment routines to function better.
By Nina W•
Useful and tangible knowledge delivered succinctly. Writing prompts a bit rigid and specific.
By RACHEL J•
It was very helpful, could improve my writing skills and understand more about story writing

Good for beginners to understand how to write and even how to read any fictional writings.
By Ray P M•
Simple, great start, could have been a little more profound though. Great start, no doubt.
