This FREE course started on monday, but I think you can still join in.
It is an 8 week course which you do online at home. They state it can take up to 3 hours a week but you can do/join in as much as you want to.
I am enjoying it so far and the discussions seem pretty good too.

I'm doing that one too, alongside the journalism one that's been going a few weeks. Hope I don't confuse the two!

I have "registered interest" as I think they said on the website, but there is no indication as to when it is going to be done again - and I would really really like to join it!
So... just waiting for now.

By the way: thanks to SugarMeFingers who mentioned that course!

Thanks for the link I've signed up too! I've no writing experience but just thought I'd give the course a go.

Just signed up! Thank you for sharing. This is just the motivation I need to focus on my writing again.

I've signed up too - see you all (and many hundreds of others) on 27th April grin

I mostly write non-fiction - I'm in the middle of a book related to my work - but I thought that doing the futurelearn course would help me focus on writing and stimulate my creativity.

I've also joined a local writing workshop, so I get to meet real people as well.

Just signed up for April - also signed up for free "getting published " type event at local Uni. Feeling a bit apprehensive!

This course starts again on 12th October, just in case anyone is interested. Any thoughts on the course from those who have done it before?

lostinabook Sun 20-Sep-15 18:38:43

Signed up for October!
