A lot of good advice

This course breaks down writing into 50 basic concepts. Although the course is intended mainly for journalism, I found a number of excellent, concrete tools that I can easily apply to the craft of songwriting. Having 50 short sections was very convenient. When I had 5 minutes to spare, I listened to another section.

Kudos to iTunes for providing these courses. This was my first and I am now going to find another of interest.

If you are a writer like me than you need this course

The short well written lessons are very informative.

Thank you!

I listened to all fifty of these iTunes U podcasts in one sitting. It was that good! Each episode is concise and without fluff. Overall, I learned a great deal more about the craft of writing than I had known before. It also echoed many of the strategies I’ve learned about in the past but have forgotten. It’s always great to have a refresher. Thanks Roy!
