As someone who likes to write and someone who writes this blog, articles for local newsletters, and so on I was excited when presented with the chance to review the Guidepost Writing Program.
Busyness is something I struggle with so when I started this course I knew it was going to have to be quick to get through it and not take up a lot of my precious time. It was certainly that! I really loved this program. When I sat down in the morning to do school with my kids I watched a video while they did their math. I could pause it when I needed to, but generally I made it through a video before they needed me!
There were 12 chapters, or videos and each is followed by a quiz. I do admit I retook a quiz or two since I missed a question here and there, but overall I thought the videos were very direct and to the point. I enjoyed the speakers and felt like they were animated and interesting!
In fact I am going to have my boys all watch these videos just to get some tips on different things to consider when writing. They may not be writing their story, but as writers themselves (articles, college, etc) I think this program would help them tremendously. Plus I think hearing the same thing from different sources helps us to learn better.
I enjoyed that there were different speakers in the videos, it was not the same person in each one. It kept things varied and interesting.
I thought the workbook was a great tool as well and when I have my boys go through this program I plan for them to work through the workbook as well.
I HIGHLY recommend this Guideposts Writing program. As a homeschool mom I have seen many but I like the simplicity but complexity as well that comes with this program.
However, don’t just take my word for it!

This course an incredible opportunity for me. No university could have done better. So much for so little money. I thank you all so very much. Will be sending something to you all regularly even if all I get is rejections! So grateful for the helpful information, I am tearing up as I write this.

Quick Course that is Very Helpful

Thus course is excellent! The short recorded sessions with Edward, Rick, Colleen, Jim, and Amy, were full of helpful information for writers in any genre. The workbook download helped me with note taking and reinforced the learning. I also am grateful that I can retake the course whenever I need a refresher. It is definitely worth $24.99.
