Creative Writing: A Master Class

This is wonderful interactive course material for anyone interested in Creative Writing or for writers. It includes videos, exercises and an incredible eBook. I had a small problem accessing some of the course material at first. I thought I was doing something wrong and I e-mailed Prof Ersheid. She promptly replied, followed up with a fix to my issue within a day. I was bowled over by the response.

Can someone help me?

I really want to take this class but I can't download the ebook and can't find it anywhere on the internet - can someone please help?


Why is this course even available for download on the iPhone? The course book can only be viewed on an iPad. What a waste of 500mb!
