Anyone completed, or done, the Writer's Bureau Diploma?


I'm looking at it seriously, but due to financial constraints (in particular that the UK Pound is NZD $2) it being $264 (currently) which equals about $500nz, I'd like to know if it's worth it

    Thanks - yes was aware of the installments and money back guarantee but have chosen to pay upfront. I agree with you re: the cert, and the constructive criticisim, which is why I think I'll go ahead - but look into all the suggestions as well.

    Stephen King's 'On Writing' is a fantastic book for any aspiring writer. I love his saying that the pearl comes from grit in the oyster, not from going to pearl-making seminars with other oysters!

    Thanks for the notes on your experience of The Writer's Bureau. And Natalie Goldberg is great fun, and my wife (a poet) likes Anne Lamott.

    Diana - you just got busy is all! Perhaps you need to take a look at their magazine again, and see if it is for you!
