Hi all, I recently had a flyer posted through the door containing a list of courses with the option to study from home. The courses consist of various material and assignments that lead up to a final exam in which you receive a Diploma upon passing. Each course you are designated a specific tutor that you deal with via internet and phone who gives you feed back on your work. Among the courses was creative writing and novel writing. So I've been debating whether or not i should do one. The only thing is I'm not sure whether its beneficial enough or not. Reason i say that is i have read several published books on novel and creative writing explaining the different aspects of writing, as well as reading a lot of contents on forums regarding writers questions or queries. So i have the books and this forum is probably better than a tutor, so is it actually worth paying out the money? Has anyone one else sat these courses and did they find them beneficial, worth paying for? learn much? Or would it be better to just continue reading and writing learning the skills and technique that way? Thanks everyone, your info could save me the pocket money that my wife sometimes allows me. So i can buy more books instead.
