Online creative writing courses

If you’d like to increase your writing skills, you can check out a few online courses we’ve found that may be of use to you. The first is by The University of Utah Department of English, called Introduction to Creative Writing. You can click on the course name and begin registration as an “other user,” and start the course immediately. The “Open University,” a free, online compilation of college-like courses also offers two programs that take between 8 and 12 hours to complete: “Writing what you know” and “Start writing fiction.” While we can’t claim that the quality on any of these courses is great, we expect that they’re a good place to start if you’re looking for quality ways to make your writing more engaging and realistic!
