I highly recommend this class. It was very short and to the point yet still offering quality content and practical skills for writers new and old. Great course!
Found how to create a fable enlightening and useful; short, sweet, simple; more than worth its 15 minutes of fame. Video & audio out of sync in several lessons (spooked my story's animals), with video leading audio by several moral-neutral nanoseconds. Had started writing a fable a few weeks ago and now can edit it more wisely (title, "One Ass to Another"). Am starting a blog with a philosophical bend and fable structure will work well introducing it. Thanks, Mike.
Very clear instructions and full of helpful tips. Highly recommend the class; it was fun and enjoyable!
