  • Fiction Writing Level 1 (Online)

    Reviewed by Katie on 9/21/2022
    I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in writing a short story or novel. In my class there were about 15-20 students with varying interest areas and writing experience. The major highlights were the teacher and the critiques. Our teacher, Varud, had a thoughtful perspective and response to nearly every question someone from the class threw at him. Beyond his knowledge and experience, he was incredibly attentive, kind, patient and encouraging. The second big benefit of the class was the critique process, called the "Booth" submissions. Twice throughout the class, you'll submit your work to be critiqued by the rest of the class. Each week, you'll read your classmates works and provide a critique. Both parts of that process are incredibly valuable. If I had to nitpick about things that could've been better - cut the exercises you do with classmates throughout the class and shave about 30-60 minutes off class time. While I got a lot from my classmates when reading their work or listening to their opinions on my writing, the mini exercises peppered throughout class didn't add much for me. Overall, I highly recommend this class to anyone interested in writing fiction!

    Was a good group of students but aside from critiquing each other’s work there was no syllabus, no teaching, no exercises. I stopped attending. Did not deliver what I expected. I did appreciate the feedback I received from the other students.

    I love that we were guided within the full 6 weeks on everything from Getting Started/Getting back to Writing Again to How to Publish/Get Yourself Out There and in between we learned great tips and ways to strengthen our writing.

    I’m not sure the class translated well to zoom learning. I don’t know if it was because of the material or the style of instruction. I’ve taken a class from Mo before (in person) and I enjoyed it quite a bit. This one fell flat. I would have liked more opportunity to practice writing and get group feedback.
