FREE Writing Courses

Yep, you heard or read that right. There's not a whole lot of things we get for free these days so this is quite extraordinary. Terri Main from Education Wants to be FREE is offering FREE writing courses. The blog is a wonderful bundle of information, resources and now free courses. And she lets you steal her posts! That's good for me when I get stuck for content. I like partnerships like that. So spread the word already.

Terri writes: You will be able to learn without restriction in those courses we offer. No Entrance Exams. No long registration forms. No governmental restriction. Crazy idea, but we believe that educators are the best at creating educational opportunities. You will learn online through a state-of-the-art distance learning website powered by MOODLE, an open source course management software, used by many universities in their own distance education programs. 

We will be offering courses in writing, history, Bible study/Theology, communication, literature and education. We will likely add other categories as we expand. Right now we are taking registrations for two courses: Preparing for Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month) and Basics of Novel Writing.

Now, onto finishing up the last of my own chapters. Let me see there's a post about writer's block here somewhere. Scrolling, scrolling . . . .
