Writing classes/courses online/distance?

Thread Starter 
Anyone have experience with a specific writing class, workshop or distance course? I'm considering a few different ones and just got a bunch of stuff in the mail - stafford, pen foster, etc. Personal experiences anyone??

I took the Writing for Children and Teenagers distance learning course through the Institute of Children's Literature some years ago. I loved it. It was well worth the money and I really think I am able to do the writing I am doing now because that course taught me how to organize my writing among other things.

I would like to take another course through them, but I don't have the money or the time now - lol. Maybe some day.

In september when the new baby comes I will limit my massage practice to one or two days a week and be home more. Thus the desire to fill the time with some other form of expression/interaction/communication. :-D

I could say more good things about the Institute of Children's Lit - they give you two years to complete the program (if I remember correctly - lol) and have regular assignments. If you need more time for any one assignment, you just have to let your instructor know. You get VERY detailed feedback from your instructor. I worked one on one with mine and she was extremely helpful. The assignments were varied. Some were fiction writing, some non-fiction, some were about finding publishers, some organizing and getting ready for a novel. Even though it was geared towards writing for children, it still had a lot of info that could be applied across the board for any type of writing.

That is the only course I know anything about, but I would love to find out more about others, so I'll be following this thread to see if anyone else adds anything.
