Are online courses helpful for writing?

Hello Myne,

I’m a fan of your blog and your writing. Lately, I realise I have many ideas that I’d like to write down but can’t seem to be articulate. I remember a previous post in which you mentioned that you took free writing lessons. Could you please recommend any online programme?

Many thanks,



This is a link I bookmarked two years ago and which I refer to on a regular basis.

When I started out then, I found the Creative Writing Suite 101 course very useful, as well as the Write what you know from the Open University UK.

I have moved on since then to the editing parts, but you can pick and choose as they suite you.

Hope it helps,
