Do you want to try your hand at writing and don’t know how to start?

Are you finding it hard to justify paying for a writing program until you see whether or not writing is really something you want to do?

Have you written a rough draft of a book or screenplay and want to know if you’re on the right track?

Here are some FREE online writing courses that may help those who are struggling to decide whether or not they want to pursue a career in writing.   This is just a list and none of the courses are endorsed by me nor do I have any relationships to any of the websites/teachers/programs etc.

Check them out – you never know what you might learn.

These sites seem to be a good place to start and also actually have free lessons.  Many search results lead to sites that don’t so hopefully you’ll find something of interest here.

Another amazing online resource is free articles.  They can be found absolutely everywhere.  Google your genre and you’ll find blogs and websites filled with free information and advice, much of it from professionals already successful in the writing biz.

So if you don’t have the money to take writing classes, don’t let that stop you from following your muse into the world of writing.
