I had an exciting four weeks participating in the FREE Start Writing Fiction Course given by FutureLearn. The lessons were provided for you to partake at your leisure and it was nice to be able to obtain feedback from an exciting and diverse group of people. My classmates ranged from beginners to advanced self-published authors, retirees, and students, statewide and aboard. I personally enjoyed the interaction with the group that was more than helpful.
Everyone had a chance to submit a portion of their work and have it analyzed by the group in an open forum. We did have a few quizzes, to drive certain points home. I wholeheartedly recommend this platform to further advance your desire to become a writer. Even seasoned authors have much to learn still regarding their craft and passion.
Another reliable source for Free classes would be located at Open University.
Both locations offer a wide array of courses and again most of the courses are free. Yes, they will advertise and try to enlist you to upgrade to diploma status and the upgrade also offers continued access to the course, please note that your free lessons are not of sub-value because you didn’t upgrade.
