Each week you can look forward to reading and study assignments, writing and other skills-based exercises, and Q&A chat sessions as needed. The topics in the outline below will be covered as introductory fundamentals that will challenge and motivate you. Our goal will be to crash you through “what every writer needs to know” in a way that will inspire, enlighten, and encourage continued learning. Work at your own pace—set your learning level to “intense” and do all six modules in six weeks or take it slower and spread them out. Writing, like completing this course, is a journey not a destination. It’s continuous learning, exploring, and expanding. This intense, six-module learning adventure will set you on the path to your writing dreams with firm ground under your feet; the remaining journey is up to you!
