I am currently preparing the online creative writing courses (those marked * above) which I plan to start by late May. They will likely be based on the format of those listed above and run via email (with occasional private website access and audio tutorials).
Option 1: The full cost of each course will be £99 (€120 / US$165 / CA & AUS $185) – payable in advance via PayPal – for a 10-week course which will include exercises, handouts, tutorials and full critique on ‘homework’ – up to 1,000 words per week, anything submitted over that would be charged at £5 (€6 / US8 / CA$ & AS$9) per 1,000 words (pro-rata) as per my editing services on this blog’s Editing & Critique page).
Option 2: Alternatively if you’re just looking to undertake the course without my editorial feedback but to include email assistance on the course itself where required, I do offer this option at £59 (€75 / $99 / CA & AUS $110) per 10-week course.
I will be creating inexpensive eBooks for the blogging and eBooking courses in the not too distant future.
NB. My online courses are all ongoing and would start whenever you wanted them to start. They are designed to run 10-weeks but the instalments can be issued over a longer period to suit you.
