TOP REVIEWS FROM WRITING FOR YOUNG READERS: OPENING THE TREASURE CHEST
Very fun, and interesting. Only thing that was lacklustre for me was the peer-feedback. I gave a lot of specific feedback and didn't really get anything back. Other than that, awesome.
I am a beginner wantabee author and publisher, first steps are elementary, as I need. Self paced, life can get in the way. Instructors are wonderful, as are the guest speakers and interviewees Thanks.
It made me realize the value of my childhood experiences as I consciously articulated them. And, all the interviews by the authors helped to learn about the process and the industry.
I've only done the first week of this course, but I've already learned so much. It is such a great course and the workload is very light. I highly recommend taking this course.
