This is an amazing course. It starts from scratch and builds up so many concepts in such a small duration of time. The mentor makes sure that all the doubts are cleared in the session and encourages us to write. This is the best writing course I have attended.


I really appreciate the method of teaching and the variety of topics that were covered.


This course can be taken up by anybody who loves writing. Doesn't matter if you are beginner or experienced, young or old.


This is the best course on creative writing I could find online for the price we pay. Highly recommend it.


The lectures were so good that i didn't miss a single session. I wish the training went on for a bit longer.


Loved the training and thank you for sharing additional resources for reference.


Overall I loved the training. I am not sure if I would use some of the formal techniques discussed.

It was great experience. I look forward to more courses from you.


Amazing course! The assignements and feedback really helped. Rhea is an excellent trainer.


Though it was a short 101 coure, there was so much information shared. I feel enriched with knowledge.


I enrolled the course particularly to learn poetry. But I enjoyed other topics equally. Thank you for such a wonderful course.


Good explaination but I think it would be better if more examples were provided.


Course was good but not exactly what I was looking for. Anyways learnt a few useful things.


After doing the course I realized I have a long way to go. A lot of technical aspects of writing was shared. It will take time to understand them completely.


Very interesting course. I don't think any other courses online provide this kind of training.


Great course for creative minds. A lot of new things came to light. Will definitely practice and adopt everything I have learned.


This course is really good. I am excited to write more.
