  3. Learning Something New

    5.0

    I’ve been looking for a creative outlet lately and decided to go for it (writing), but I wanted to learn along the way.
    This course offered insight I hadn’t thought of and has challenged me to have fun and not pressure myself to be perfect, but to grow and adapt.
    If you want a quick class with lots of good pointers and tips- this is it!

    Creative Writing for Beginners

    5.0

    The course was useful for people who are wavering on the precipice of taking a leap into the world of writing. There is confidence boosting in the presentation and emphasis on daily writing noting that is a fun activity which stretches our brain to be creative. The writing/thinking/experiential exercises are great in supporting the information and direction Tracy provides. I am looking forward to many fun days ahead as stories/characters in my head come to life. Now I have an outline of structure which was nebulous to me prior to this course.
