Everything comes together in the Capstone. You will draft a complete story, narrative essay, or memoir of 8–15 pages. With the advice of your peer readers, you will revise, rewrite, and complete it. The skills you’ve learned of plotting, setting, physical description, characterization, and stylistic clarity and innovation will culminate in an original work of art all your own. We’ll discuss the steps that professional writers take to bring their work into the public world. Along the way you’ll learn the patient habits of revision that make up the writer’s life.

Well structured and easy to follow the course. Lecturers were fantastic. Assignments were duly accessed and submitted and the Support team was very responsive to issues and queries.
I got so, so much out of this! It's not only helped me with my own writing, but it's helped me with being able to be a better editor, also. Enjoyed being able to read other writers' works, as well.
The course was really helpful. It helped me understand the basic concepts of creative writing. Loved learning it.
Helpful program to tackle larger writing projects, detailing how to get started and keep momentum throughout.
