Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish. In the world of writing, however, momentum is critical. I'd highly recommend finishing the course within a month of beginning it. Within two or three weeks is even better. But it is up to you.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund.
What if I don't want to post my work for other writers to see?
No problem at all. If you prefer, you can email me your work and I can comment on it privately.
What kind of discussion board do you use for the assignments and is it open to the public?
As of now, I'm using a private Slack Group for posting the homework assignments. Only invited participants (people who have enrolled in the class) can see your work there.
