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.
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.
Thanks for sharing your experience of the WB. I've looked at classes etc - this is by far the more cost effective of the lot in NZ.
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!
I totally agree with you both on Stephen King's "On Writing". I've had that book since it came out, and it's worn and dog-eared like crazy from how many times Ive read it. Its realistic and not sugar coated, and his advice it to the point and hones
Agreed. His 71-page auto biography is a must-read for anyone in trouble with drugs or alcohol, or needing to do an intervention with family for that, as well.
Thanks. I've read Stephen King's one. I've also applied for the Hubpages Apprenticeship - and been declined. I will take a look at the stuff you mentioned - and, I like the hub idea - will do!
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!
I enjoy the magazines when I read them, buy you're right, I'm just too busy, and maybe I should start the course again - beginning of new year and all that
What are you like? You are a writer who sees the world in a wonderful way. Your dropping the course says nothing about you.But your picking it up could speak worlds about your dedication to your art.
