  • I love that there are these options for shorter courses on specific topics. I think its a great addition to the Writer Collectives Course catalogue! I've taken a writing course with another school once many years ago, but IWC just has one of the best atmospheres. The teachers really make you feel supported and its reflected in the community.

  • I haven’t taken courses in creative writing before. I thought I could write, having written and edited for magazines for more than 25 years. Writing an autobiographical novel made me realize I needed some help. This collective has already helped me out with some of my issues.

  • Yes. This course is the real deal, it is intellectually stimulating, and very enjoyable at a social level.

  • The exercises/samples this time around were different from last time and very engaging. Even though we still covered the same overarching themes, it felt like we were learning new nuances of how those themes can be applied in different ways.

  • Great. Nothing but praise for the teacher. Good classes useful comments and clear instructions. I enjoyed the breakdown of the literary devices and the use of accurate examples.

  • I would absolutely recommend this course. To both fiction writers and non-fiction writers, because you're really looking at your writing in a new way.

  • The teacher was great. She always brought great examples into class that broadens our mind and thoughts on any given topic. There was never any awkward lull, she had a way of getting folks to share more. Her critiques were always super helpful in moving things forward. I look forward to reading them every week.

  • I loved getting back into a regular writing practice. The very varied readings and techniques trigger all sorts of ideas, and it's just great trying out forms that I previously thought didn't 'suit' me.

  • This was my second time taking a Level 2. I loved the different format (over L1) where we get to really focus on writing forward to some form of conclusion. Very satisfying!

  • I really enjoyed the structure of the course which motivated me to write and explore a variety of narrative styles. The feedback process was also fruitful, both in terms of giving and receiving. The teacher's availability and feedback were crucial advantages.

  • This was my third Level 1 class and I would say that all the teachers at IWC are amazing, as they teach us how to write in a safe environment. The exercises are fun and I’ve improved tremendously in my writing each term.
