    The workbook helped to bring my writing to a new understanding of what a writer whether novice or otherwise has to go through to get a story or article published. Not just the creative process but also in understanding the ins and outs of any king of writing one does. It is an excellent source from which I will keep and go back to for future reference in writing.

    I have a strong passion for story telling, probably because of my interest in Literature in English as a subject during my Secondary School Days. Although I have over (13) years of work experience as a Control Officer in the Banking Sector, still there is an emptiness that need to be filled in my life until I was introduced into the Writing Ministry at Ikoyi Baptist Church, Lagos - Nigeria in the year 2015. This Essential Class really gives all the flavour I needed to spice up the missing parts of my creative writing skills. Thanks to Guideposts for this wonderful program.

    I loved the short modules that focus on the core information. My life is busy, as is many others, and having content that was clear and direct was very appealing to me. I learned so much and it came at the perfect time, as I just finished my first draft. I delayed starting the course until I had finished the first draft, as I like to take a break to clear my mind before the editing process. I am eager to start my rewrite in a few days. I feel empowered to begin this next step in the process. Trish B.

    I've been writing and publishing for 35+ years. I live in the camp of "never quit learning" so I was excited to see a course offered from Guidepost since I do have a few rejection slips from them. This course exceeded my expectations. I knew much of what they talked about, but the way they presented it, their examples and explanations, fine-tuned what I know. We all learn a lot through our reading; it's like we learn through osmosis, but when we are taught specifics and the reasoning behind those specifics, we become better writers. This course is for beginners and experienced writers. If God calls us to write, we have a responsibility to learn all we can about writing for publication and how to become the best writer we can be. This course will not only set us on the right path but give us confidence that we've done our best. Hats off to the editors!

    The insights shared by the fantastic team of Guideposts instructors provided me with specific guidance about how to write impactful first-person stories from the heart. The instructors offered space to allow for personal leeway as well, thereby creating the ideal mix of publishing wisdom and individual contributions. It's been a blessing to participate in this course, and I'm grateful to the Guideposts team for preparing the content so thoroughly and delivering the messages so powerfully. And now, I'm off to write, write, and write some more!

    I am super grateful that I just happened to discover this on line. And, interestingly, today I got my Guidepost in the mail and just happened to read about this course which I just happened to finish today! I call that a God Wink as SQuire Rushnell and Louise Duart would say. I've been led to all of this and am hoping to begin my writing again. I wrote screenplays for years and was a runner up several times but, that was it. Now...I'm trusting God more than ever before and hoping HE may use my words to help others. We shall see. Anyway, this was a fantastic course and I will continue to listen to it over and over. I give this course a Five Star for sure. It was wonderful. Thank you to Guidepost for this!

    I am forever grateful to the Guideposts editors who presented this course in such a way to help make writing great stories an achievable goal for me. The real-life people on the videos made this course come alive for me. I will be watching the course videos repeatedly not only because of the valuable information but also because of the positive energy I receive from them. This course is Priceless. I only wish I would have taken this before, and not after I submitted my Writers Workshop story. I will keep writing though! Thank You for offering this amazing course, and at such an affordable price. Feeling oh so Grateful Cathy Hoheisel

    This is an advance modules that enables me polish my previous skills in creative Writing & and Storytelling. It not only opens my eyes to those details a Writer need to pay attention from draft, review and final proof reading but also exposed me to the ideas of pitching storyline with the Editors. Persistence is a virtue any Writer need to build into this Vocation until there is a green lights from the reviewing Editor. I am grateful for taking this Advance Creative Writing program of Guideposts Academy from Lagos - Nigeria.
