We are announcing a new services from EWR. It seems like a natural progression for us to now offer free writing courses from EWR. We have become so involved with the writing community of the web that we feel it is time to offer this service, as always, for free. We are starting with daily writing prompts and a short story writing course. The courses we offer will all be 12 to 24 lessons long to simulate a college writing course.
We can’t say that you will get any credit from these course, but we honestly believe they will help you in your writing. These courses are not designed for any particular skill level. If you are a pro you can use them for practice, if you are a beginner you are sure to learn something.
They represent many invested hours of work on our part, and we hope you will get as much out of them as we put in to them. This is our effort to give something back to all our readers.
The site is just getting started, so much more is to come. If you go one lesson per week you will have plenty to keep you busy while we are writing the next lessons.
