Many of you have written asking about on-line writing courses. Are they worth the money and do they really help?
Here is Robert Hammond's answer--I'll post some more writer's opinions on this subject in my newsletter on May 1st!
Online courses can be great. I'm finishing my Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Creative Writing - screenwriting emphasis. I like that particular program because it is accredited and can transfer to another university Also the MFA degree allows one to teach Creative Writing at the college level. See: http://www.nu.edu/ I also know that many other colleges offer online programs, such as UCLA.. This may not be what you're looking for because it is quite a bit more expensive than many of the correspondence courses that are not accredited.
