I have no hesitation in recommending The Writing Forge Courses. It is a very practical course with excellent feedback on coursework. The support and motivation provided by the tutor inspired me to publish my first book and even this would not have been accomplished if not for the professional proof reading services of The Writing Forge.

The Writing Forge modules deliver structured content which is both widely applicable and precisely illustrated. That alone puts it in a league of its own, well beyond any collection of helpful writing tips. But the course truly shines in the range of exercises suggested: they come in all types and lengths, they encourage discovery and deliver unforgettable lessons (for those willing to give them a shot).

The quality of the feedback I received exceeded all of my expectations. It rewarded the effort I put into each exercise and did not shy away from clearly pointing out areas for improvement. It guided my progress through the modules and made me trust in my abilities. And beyond this, it provided insights that have benefited all of my writing.

I knew when I read the first module that I was on to a good thing. I eagerly submitted all of the exercises. I received quality feedback that confirmed my initial impression and so it continued module after module. I have been amazed at the amount of learning accomplished at each stage—reading, writing and receiving feedback—of each cycle.

My top 10 tags for the Writing Forge: challenging, ear-tuning, encouraging, eye-opening, focused, inspiring, improving, rewarding, skin-toughening, stimulating.
