Course Welcome (from a new book)

Originally posted on Creative Writing Course:
THE “ORIGINAL (and famous”) ONLINE CREATIVE WRITING COURSE ? WELCOME ? Nice to hear from you and welcome to our FREE First Steps writing course – as far as we know the ONLY one of it’s type on the internet by a prolific writer. A couple of teaching institutions (even a film school that teaches script-writing) in the States have been very encouraging about our CREATIVE WRITING COURSES. I see more and more learning institutions around the globe linking to our site. This has been very encouraging and exciting for my technical “geek” associate Bill and I based here in “Sleepy Hollow” in “Godzone” (as New Zealand is affectionately known).There has been great interest in our courses since we started about four years ago (the “ORIGINAL AND FAMOUS” online creative writing course) and it has been extensively developed. (Far better, I think… even if I say so myself!) ? ? ? ? We are offering the first Course FREE and the Twelve lessons of the Introductory Creative Writing Course will be accessible on payment . We are requesting a nominal (funny word that ‘nominal’) fee of U.S $69* for the INTRODUCTORY COURSE of 12 lessons.You can pay directly by credit card on our secure site. It’s perfectly safe (and painless too. OUCH!). Otherwise a bank draft made out to C.Lock can be forwarded to me at: Eagle Productions, 2 Elm St,  Gisborne 4010 New Zealand. You can do the lessons at any time which suits you and forward to me. We realise all of you have different time constraints to do the course. Therefore please feel free to do each lesson at your own pace.We have had many participants from all over the world since starting the first course about four years ago; however I am committed to responding to every submission. I have put my own books aside to give my undivided attention, time and energies to this course. My technical associate, Bill and I do appreciate hearing from you and reading your work. I believe everyone has a story to tell within themselves… just waiting for the time and opportunity… but most of all, we have to have the drive and dedication to get it down on paper. ? [Top][HOME][Craig’s Books] [Register for Creative Writing] ? I firmly believe we can use all our experiences in life to our benefit (financially and otherwise), but most of all to reach out and touch others. That is what I have tried to do in my various books.We all have unique styles and individual ways of getting our messages across – sharing through the written word.You give me the inspiration to keep developing the course, so that we can all learn and grow from each others life experiences.- through sharing and interacting (big word, eh!). It’s through YOUR participation and submissions that make this online writing course worthwhile. Phew! .. Well, your turn now… ? craig and bill (1997/98) from http://www.amazon.com/Creative-Writing-Course-writing-original/dp/1490345817/ (1st edition)
