Recent Student Testimonials
Writing Mindfulness was an extremely engaging course. Assignments were challenging yet fun. Feedback – by both Marc and fellow students – offered gentle learning nudges. In just one short month, a strong community of poets was formed. Marc created a safe and creative learning environment. He was an on-going presence, providing constant feedback and encouragement. I will definitely take more writers.com courses.
Lissa is a generous and warm teacher. Her assignments were interesting and created a space for a student to delve into their own insights and interests. I really loved this class. I looked forward to each week’s assignment.
Brilliant course. Brilliant structure. Brilliant teacher. Brilliant participants. Gloria is dedicated and so hard working. She gives thorough in depth personal feedback and asks a lot of questions that makes you think about how to improve your writing.
Julie is exceptional. She gives in depth inline feedback that is amazingly useful. Julie is such a brilliant and dedicated teacher that I like every course run by her!
I loved it! It was my first experience with Writers.com, and it was nice to not be on Zoom and to jump in the discussion board at my own pace. Marc had such a nice balance of amplifying my strengths and giving me the confidence as a beginner, while gradually providing concrete feedback and areas of improvement. I really appreciated this approach.
The course structure, covering so much in a short time; the course material and examples offered in support of each topic; and the instructor’s feedback on my work and that of my co-participants, were all truly outstanding.
I take a TON of classes. Some people knit, I take classes. But in all the hundreds of classes I’ve taken, I’ve never been more inspired than I have been with this class with Dennis. The lessons each week were focused and thorough. But where the course shined was the easy way in which Dennis absolutely convinced me I can do this! I will never forget this experience. Thank you, Dennis.
This was a great way to get feedback and direction for a piece of writing that needed both. Julie is super supportive and also very honest (and gentle) about what works and what might be edited or improved. I really appreciate her style.
