Last fall, a friend told me about UCLA Extension Writer’s Program–an online creative writing program that offers over 100 creative writing courses at all levels. These aren’t college-credit courses, but they’re taught by well-published authors who know writing. I took a 20-week novel writing workshop with novelist Caroline Leavitt. Caroline was an extraordinary teacher–hard working, quick to respond, willing to help, kind yet instructive. I learned loads and will likely take another class with her or the other teachers at UCLA. Whether novel writing, short story, essays, drama, screenwriting, UCLA Extension Writer’s Program is worth checking out.
