TOP REVIEWS FROM WRITING FOR YOUNG READERS: OPENING THE TREASURE CHEST
An absolutely fantastic course! Good for beginners, but also good for those with experience as well. The instructors are great and all the guest speakers are delightful and interesting.
I am a beginner wantabee author and publisher, first steps are elementary, as I need. Self paced, life can get in the way. Instructors are wonderful, as are the guest speakers and interviewees Thanks.
It made me realize the value of my childhood experiences as I consciously articulated them. And, all the interviews by the authors helped to learn about the process and the industry.
It was an excellent course! Wonderful presenters and I loved the interviews with authors. I can definitely recommend it to others. I enjoyed every module and all the activities.
