What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, you can contact us for a refund within the first 48 hours of the course. In this case, that means by end of day (11:59pm EDT) on August 18, 2020.
Do I have to be online at certain times of the day?
No! This course is self-directed and done on your own time. You can interact with fellow challengers on a discussion forum, but that's optional! No matter your time zone or availability, you complete the tasks on your own time.
Is this challenge just for fiction writers?
Absolutely not! This challenge, more than others, is for anyone who wants to write in any capacity. Journalling, freewriting, fiction, poetry... you name it. If the act of writing is something you're hoping to do, this challenge is for you.
Will I receive personal feedback on the stuff I write?
There is no feedback or evaluative element to this course. We will find ways to allow students to share ideas, but the instructor will not be reading or providing feedback on the writing you complete over the course of the week. The goal of the course is not to write high quality, polished work. It's more about actually writing... sitting down and putting the pen to the page or the fingers to the keyboard. Writerscape is currently examining ways to help students who do want personal feedback on their writing. More on that to come!
