Is anyone published?

Unread post by JD3C »

Hello!

I'm just curious if anyone has had any work published? Specifically a novel (but I'd love to hear anything else as well!). I'm looking into the course and I want to know what you think of it! Creative or Novel writing are the two I'm researching to take. Any information you have would be much appreciated! - Cheers!

Hi, I am taking the Creative Writing Course, and concentrating on writing articles and short stories. Since I started taking the course, I have published two articles, and was asked to become a paid staff writer for a magazine. I am writing my third article, and submitted a dozen article ideas to the editor. His response? "I will take everything you write." Laurie, my tutor is excellent. There is no question her expertise helped me become a better writer and was a big part of the reason I landed a writing job.

@RGC Writer

Congratulations! This is really great to know. Laurie is my Tutor as well and I look forward to working with her.

How long did it take for your assignments to be reviewed and returned?

Thank you.

Hi Dora -sent you a reply to another post. Laurie is a tough tutor! Which is good! I remember one of her comments: "You have used the same word 4 times in the same paragraph - you are a writer, you are better than this." And she was right. Honestly, she has really helped my writing. Three articles published so far -$3,900! And I have been asked to write 6 more assignments (all paid) for the same magazine. I also sent a query letter to Cottage Life and they are considering my article. Laurie went over my cover letter and provided great advice. And it worked!!!! I got a reply saying they were interested.
Good luck with your writing. By the way - I only have 2 more assignments to complete the course.

Hi Ron,

You are such an inspiration!! Laurie is also my tutor.
I have been trying to complete this creative writing course for a long time but life got in the way all the time. I am determined to see it through this time and become the best writer I can be. I am also concentrating on articles and short stories for now.

Thanks again. Much appreciated.
