Course Details and Enrolment
I recently completed the Writing Magazine Becoming a Successful Writer course and was delighted to receive my certificate of completion. I found the course both enjoyable and challenging - a lot of hard work, but ultimately very rewarding. My tutor, Sue Johnson, was great and I found her comments, encouragement and positive criticism extremely helpful. The assignments gave me the chance to try different types of writing and I had to develop a more disciplined approach to my writing to ensure I was able to finish the course within the two years. Most of all, I have gained confidence. I still have a long way to go but I have learned a lot and now feel confident enough to start sending out some of my work and to enter competitions.
Constructive criticism without the barb Plenty of encouragement and a friendly approach 10 out of 10
One of our most popular courses, it is perfect if you're new to writing and unsure which direction you want your writing to take. This writing course lets you try writing for different genres including fiction, article writing and writing for children.
I have read lots of books on fiction writing. None of them has given me the understanding of writing that I've received from you.
My tutor seems to have the knack of putting his finger on what I knew would be weak areas of writing.
Working with a published writer, the Writers' News Home Study Fiction course gives you the basic novel outline into a polished manuscript. Learn how to create memorable characters and write dynamic dialogue.

I like the encouragement that is given. It is good to hear the voice of experience on your work.

Many people have unique life experiences which should be shared with a wider audience, but are unsure how to put them into words. This writing course helps you put your thoughts on paper and share them with others.
Have been so impressed I'm dreading my last assignment, because I know it will mean the end of the course.
The personal approach is friendly and very helpful, more 'giving' than expected. This is much appreciated.
If you would like to write articles and fillers for newspapers and magazines, this course shows you how to turn your ideas into writing that sells.
The criticism I receive is honest. My tutor doesn't simply tell me what I would like to hear, she tells me the truth.
I did the Short Story creative writing course with Writing Magazine and found it to be invaluable. The tutor was very encouraging and I never had to wait too long for the feedback after each assignment. I have since won a short story competition with Writers' News and also been short listed for a second short story. The course had been very inspirational.

I have been trying to write stories for years, and Stephanie Baudet is the first tutor I have had whose criticism is objective and really helpful; she does not beat about the bush like the others have done in the past; she can pinpoint the weaknesses precisely and her comments are like nuggets of gold. I am so fortunate to have found someone who knows how to criticize my work 'properly'; in other words, honestly
